Jazz Styles-Early Jazz

We are going to be doing a series of posts coming up highlighting Jazz History through the eyes of Brent Jensen. Brent is a professor of jazz at the College of Southern Idaho and a saxophonist on a number of albums on the Origin label.

In addition to being a great player, Brent is extremely knowledgeable about the history of jazz. He did a series of videos for his jazz history class on his YouTube page about the various jazz styles. We will be sharing these videos over the next couple weeks.  Keep in mind these videos were done for a series of classroom lectures, and so a few things he talks about are relevant to the class and not for the community at large.  However, there is great information in these videos, and if you want to know more about the history of jazz, this is a good place to start without having to spend any money!

This first video highlights the basics of Early Jazz.  Enjoy!
