Last year, Phil Schaap joined us to film a series that discusses the early origins of Jazz. It’s an engaging eight-part series that will answer some questions you may not yet have thought of, like:

  • Why is Marco Polo important to the development of Jazz?
  • What made New Orleans so special and so crucial in the creation of Jazz?
  • What was Congo Square?
  • How did Jazz originate?
  • How did the solo develop?
