A comprehensive overview of the evolution of American jazz from its roots in African folksong and ritual through the present day. Related topics such as Crossover, Third Stream, Fusion, and jazz-influenced classical music will also be considered. Emphasis will be placed on listening and class discussion, with possible live in-class performances. There will also be reading and listening assignments, plus a class presentation on a live jazz performance of the student's choice.
