Varis Leichtman Studio

Jazz 101 with Seton Hawkins

Week Seven: Fusions: Latin Jazz, Third Stream, and Jazz-Rock Fusion

Can’t commit to a full course? Single classes are now available at Swing University for $35 each (fees may apply).

From its very beginnings, Jazz was always a fusion of musical styles. However, as the century progressed, Jazz began to work even more closely with other genres, giving birth to many new and exciting styles. Latin Jazz emerged, fusing Jazz vocabulary with Afro-Cuban musical traditions. Third Stream sought to marry Jazz and Classical music, while Fusion looked to the burgeoning rock scene for inspiration. In this class, we’ll cover how these styles emerged, and how they came to reshape Jazz.
