MSC 1003 - Music in Civilization

Class 24Monday, 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.

These are probably my last zooms! I don't think we will need them after this. However, of course I will happily meet with you by appointment if you want.

Assignment #53: Bebop, Cool Jazz and Hard Bop

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

Part I: Bebop (mid-40s and 50s)
Part II: Cool Jazz and Hard Bop (50s and 60s)

Then, Assignment #52 asks you thirteen questions.

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

Extra Jazz Pages

Don't forget that we've got playlists that cover the most important tracks from the Jazz units:

YouTube / Spotify / Apple Music

And I made you a special page about the history of jazz singers.
