This course surveys the historical growth and development of the various kinds of music that have been called "jazz" in the United States. Structured as a chronological overview, the course places the musical conventions, significant performers, and key aesthetic shifts of jazz in cultural, technological, and social context. Students will learn not only to identify the differences between a wide range of jazz styles but also to analyze and interpret the meanings of these differences. In the process, the course aims to help students build skills for listening to, describing, analyzing, and writing about jazz. Assignments involve reading, listening, brief written assignments, two papers, and two exams.
