The Knowledge: Jazz


The jazz paradox: why has an art that has so transformed the world’s music in barely 100 years, remained so widely misunderstood? Jazz shines light on the subject for those intrigued by its influence and creativity, but also mystified by its occasionally
esoteric habits. From charting the first wave of jazz to breaking down its full history, Jazz will lead you from the form’s African-American slave origins to the individuals who shaped the most innovative musical genre of the 20th century.
