What is Jazz? With Serge Le Goueff
Sunday 02 December 3.00pm
International jazz saxophonist and jazz educator Serge Le Goueff invites you to join him on his presentation “What is Jazz?” during which he will bring to light the myths as well as the many truths that have contributed to shape Jazz music over the past century. Through a historical and musical exploration of this genre, Serge brings you this Jazz Appreciation address at the Ellington Jazz club. If you have ever wondered why some people love Jazz when others show utter contempt; why Jazz sounds melodic at times when at other times it sounds incomprehensible; what are the essential elements necessary for a music to be associated with the Jazz genre; where does Jazz come from? Then be part of the action and partake in Serge Le Goueff’s fascinating lecture that is “What is jazz”.
