Way Down Yonder in New Orleans: The Genesis of Jazz

The unique situation of New Orleans at the turn of the 20th century – its race politics, its gumbo of cultures – gave rise to the new music called "jass". After a circuitous route north, this music caused a worldwide sensation upon the release of the first recordings of jazz in 1917. Dr. Daley will illustrate his points with some classic recordings of the era.
