Varis Leichtman Studio

Jazz 101, Week 6

Cool Jazz, Hard Bop, Modal Jazz, Free Jazz

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

As the 1940s gave way to the 1950s, Jazz developed many new offshoot styles. Cool Jazz arrived, seeking a marriage of BeBop and Swing Era music. Hard Bop sought to infuse bop with Blues and Gospel roots. Modal Jazz wanted to rebuild the music’s harmonic system completely, while Free Jazz sought to uproot many (and sometimes all!) of our preconceptions of what this music should sound like! Join us as we explore these many styles, and the innovators who created them.


*Please note that February 28th’s class will be held at the Juilliard School of Music. Please email swingu@jazz.org for questions
