Jazz-Rock Fusion: Week Four

1980s and Beyond: Fusion’s Legacy

Jazz-Rock Fusion underwent a massive transformation as the 1970's progressed, and its descendants of the 1980's and 1990's continued to undergo many changes, innovations, and alterations. We’ll explore the legacy of this style in our fourth and final class.


Dizzy's Club

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra

The Scottish National Jazz Orchestra (SNJO) is one of Europe’s foremost contemporary big bands. The SNJO will be joined by leading Scots actor Tam Dean Burn to create a wildly vivid jazz version of Prokofiev’s famous cautionary fable. Combining virtuosity and ingenuity with striking theatricality, it’s a delightful collision between a folk tale and big-band swing with the music woven around expressive dialogue adapted by former Scots Makar (National Poet of Scotland) Liz Lochhead.
