|Class 24||Monday, May 03|
OK! Just one jazz unit for today, though it's another somewhat hefty one.
Special Assignment #3 Zooms
Buncha stuff is due tonight, including special assignment #3 (though as always I will take it late with a 5-10 point penalty.)
I will do support zooms this afternoon. Click on the office hours page to sign up.

First, please read our online coverage of these jazz movements from the mid-1940s onwards. It is in two parts:

This one is due on the day of Class 28 (Mon, May 17).
