But as with every great artistic movement, something came before it. The foundations of jazz have long been traced to the slave songs of American plantations, African polyrhythms, and the European classical tradition.
During the evening you will have the opportunity to listen to truly original craftsman including Andrew Oliver, one of London's leading ragtime and early jazz performers and Marcus Bonfanti, an in-demand performer at East-London nightspot for live jazz and swing, Kansas Smitty's.
It's time to find the music, lose it, then find it again!
