Jazz & Culture

by Andrew E. Barnes

Title Details

Audio Original


This course provides a survey of the cultural reaction to jazz from its emergence as a distinct form of music in the first decades of the twentieth century to its inclusion in the intellectual academy as an accepted form of music in the last decades of the twentieth century. Through the study of texts and music, the course hopes to provide students with a sense of how both jazz and its audiences evolved over the century. While some consideration will be given to jazz as it was experienced in Europe and the rest of the world, the main focus will be on how jazz developed in the United States. Because the concern is to connect jazz styles with other contemporary cultural phenomena, coverage will decline after 1970, by which time most of the styles presently maintained had come into existence.
