Jazz has achieved significant worldwide recognition as an indigenous American art form.
Although this unique vehicle of artistic expression is largely overlooked in mainstream popular culture, it is held in high esteem globally for its combination creativity, individuality, and collective collaboration, which provides a foundation further creative exploration.
The Jazz Experience combines live music and projected images to detail the development of the art form, from its African roots to its most modern and progressive styles. Scat to “Satchmo’s” New Orleans tune, Scott Joplin’s Ragtime piano, Billie Holiday’s blues, Miles Davis’s cool sound and funky new jazzy grooves.
