Enthusiasts discuss and listen to Jazz from Traditional to Modern
Jazz Appreciation 1
Meets: 3rd Monday of the Month
Time: 14:15 – 16:15
Several members take it in turn to host the Group. The programme for the first hour is decided month by month and draws on recorded screenings of documentaries, profiles and concerts, together with occasional films with a jazz theme, any of which can be shown to the Group on the host’s TV.
The intention is to provide sessions on great instrumentalists, bands and singers, the differing treatment of melodies and comparisons of one musician with another.
The second hour is given over to the personal musical choice of the host or other members who play and reminisce about their favourite audio tracks on CD and vinyl.
Sources are whatever is held by members themselves or such as the U3A Resource Centre.
