What’s This Thing Called Jazz? - A jazz trio (guitar/vocals, bass and drums) will introduce you to the musical form called jazz. There is no better example of democracy than listening to a jazz ensemble. You will hear how an ensemble adheres to the overall framework and structure of a song yet provides their own spin on the music through improvisation.
Where in the World is Jazz? – Where did jazz originate and how did it get to what it is today? Join Martin Hand and the trio as they explore the origins of the music of jazz, how it moved throughout America and became the music it is today.
Jazz Forward - Hear samples of how jazz is evolving and connecting with other forms of music. Martin and the musicians of the Gold Coast Jazz Society Band will give you peek into the future of jazz.
