Dr. Billy Taylor's "What is Jazz?"
"In traditional academic situations, I studied with the masters in the European classical tradition, and in less formal situations I studied with masters of the African-American traditions. My personal associations with Art Tatum, Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington, and other jazz giants helped me develop my own perspective for presenting my own music and that of other jazz artists." Dr. Billy Taylor, from the Preface to "Jazz Piano, a jazz history" Produced by IMS in cooperation with ARTSEDGE. On location recordings by Philippe Tabaux.
What to Listen for in Music
Dr. Michael Broyles, professor of music at Pennsylvania State University, delivers a series of lectures explaining the structure of the music of the Classic and Romatic periods in Europe; music that still dominates the world's concert halls. With more than four hours of audio, extensive text, cross-indexing, and the unique Audio Glossary, "What to Listen for in Music" is a complete on-line short course on the subject. Produced by IMS in cooperation with ARTSEDGE. On location recordings and photographs by Philippe Tabaux.
