WHY JAZZ HAPPENED: A MULTIMEDIA TALK WITH MARC MYERS
From bebop to fusion, jazz styles changed rapidly between 1942 and 1972. Creative genius was only half the story. Equally important was a series of unlikely business, cultural and technological upheavals-including the G.I. Bill, the suburbanization of Los Angeles and the rise of the 12-inch LP-that helped jazz flower between WWII and Watergate. Join us on Monday, February 4 at noon for a vivid audio-visual tour through jazz's golden era. Marc Myers is a Wall Street Journal music contributor and editor of JazzWax.com, which won the Jazz Journalists Association's 2012 Blog of the Year. His new book is Why Jazz Happened (University of California Press; December 10, 2012).
