What is jazz? It's music, but it's also more than that. And though jazz recordings now account for no more than 3% of music sales in the U.S.A., the influence of jazz upon American music, literature, ideas, images, and style has been and continues to be immense. Why is that? This course will explore this paradox by introducing students to the history of jazz music (esp. the 1920-1970 period) in the contexts of its special place in African American cultural and literary history as well as in the American cultural imagination.
