Jazz before Jazz was Jazz

Presented by The Arts Society and Kansas Smitty's.

Every great saga needs a prequel. Long before jazz was first officially recorded, its foundations were laid in the slave songs of American plantations, African polyrhythms, and the European classical tradition.

On November 12th, through talks, interactive workshops and performances by some of the best young musicians in the country, the people and sounds that enabled the greatest leap forward in popular music recording for a century will be brought to life at Two Temple Place.
