Ghoulish Tricks and Jazz Treats

Jazz was born in the USA in and around New Orleans.  It traveled up the Mississippi River and to both coasts within just a few years, to become America’s true art form.  From the 1920’s through the 1940’s music based on Jazz was considered “Pop” music.  From Dixieland to big band swing in night clubs and dance halls, to the concert stage, jazz music was the rage.  Even what we know as rock n’ roll came from jazz music through rhythm and blues.  Our festival journey this year covers everything from jazz origins, through its many versions, including the Latin influence from South America, Cuba and Puerto Rico.  We hope you enjoy the trip!!
