JAZZ 100 - Een geschiedenis van de jazz: Jazz is everywhere

Marc Van den Hoof

Jazz 100!

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.



Jazz is everywhere

One hundred years later, all the different stages of jazz history come together in the present. We encounter once again the polyphony of the inventors, the homophony of the big bands, the premeditational approach of the boppers, the thoughtfulness of the cool, the fusion with musical styles from around the world, from distilled raga, through the hard rock and the roughest hip-hop. "Jazz was. Jazz is. Jazz remains." (J.A. Deelder)
