Jazz Listening: The Big Bands NEW

ID : 43882   
« back to classes page
A non-technological survey of the 12 to 18-piece big bands that have dotted and sometimes dominated the jazz scene.  Special emphasis will be given to the so-called Big Band Era (synonmous with the Swing Era): Ellington, Basie, Goodman, Shaw, Barnet, Webb, Lunceford et al. Supplementing the Swing Era performances will be the best of the post-bebop bands--Boyd Raeburn, Billy Eckstine, Dizzy Gillespie and Thad Jones-Mel Lewis, among others--as well as Swing Era holdovers like Woody Herman, Ellington, Basie, Harry James, Buddy Rich and Stan Kenton.
