A presentation with music educators Lloyd Kaplan and Tom Shaker

There are many styles of Jazz, from Dixieland to Swing and Bebop to Fusion, Jazz comes in many forms.

‘Cool’ refers to a relaxed tempo and lighter tone, sometimes using elements of classical music. "Take Five" by the Dave Brubeck Quintet is one of the most well-known cool jazz tunes.

In the 1950s Dave Brubeck’s music not only helped create a new type of jazz, but it also helped jazz become a best seller again.

Join us for an entertaining, informational and above all, musical look at one of the giants of jazz, Dave Brubeck.
