If you fancy becoming a jazz expert, let trombonist Vincent Gardner of the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra be your guide during this six-course, three-week course on the history and appreciation of bebop. A renegade jazz style in 1945, bebop was huge by 1950. This class examines this innovative sound, marked by virtuosity, fuller harmonies, and a new rhythmic sense, and places it in a modern context. This informative course is part of Swing University, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s higher-education program held at the Irene Diamond Education Center.
