JAZZ 100 - Een geschiedenis van de jazz: The inventors salon

Marc Van den Hoof

Jazz 100! | Brussels Jazz Festival

February 26, 1917: the Original Dixieland Jass Band releases the first jazz album. Livery Stable Blues is a huge success and marks the beginning of the history of jazz. Thanks to the invention of the disc, the new genre (in which improvisation plays a key role) continues to develop, to spread and to evolve stylistically from popular entertainment to art music. During these lectures, Marc Van den Hoof and Marc Danval talk about the three-minute masterpieces and the luxury compact disk: 100 years of jazz history.



The inventors salon

It all starts one hundred years ago: from the very first 'jass' album, recorded on February 26th 1917, to the music known a century later as 'jazz'. During the time, we meet the big 'inventors' starting from Buddy Bolden and Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton and Sidney Bechet to Bix Beiderbecke. During this lecture we talk about Buddy Boldens blues that nobody has ever heard and about Armstrongs West End Blues, his first masterpiece.
