The Arts Society Essex Area welcomes you to a riveting study day about the history and enduring significance of Jazz.

100 years ago a group of American musicians docked in London, bringing with them one of 20th century's most important musical genres: Jazz. A fascinating blend of rigorous structure, free- wheeling creativity, close- knit ensemble work & improvisation. Illustrated by pre-impressionist Maurice Ravel to classic Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington.

The cost of this study day is £30.00 which includes lunch and all drinks.
