In 1959 both men recorded their seminal works - John Coltrane’s Giant Steps stretched harmony to it’s breaking point, while Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue went in the complete opposite direction, giving birth to the open, expansive sound of modal jazz. We explore the intersection of two very different careers and characters and how they shaped jazz as we know it today. The Jazz Playground is a fun, interactive and educational live performance program inviting kids and adults of all ages to dance, sing and swing to the rhythms of jazz. Presented by a live band, The Jazz Playground introduces the instruments and core concepts of jazz through familiar songs, sounds and rhythms. We explore history, language and diversity through an organic and participatory jazz performance featuring a rotating roster of guest teaching-artists. Each class will introduce a new instrument or style, and will take a trip to different places or times in history to explore how jazz shaped modern music in the 20th century onwards. Above all, The Jazz Playground invites children of all ages to find their own creative space, develop their imagination and to collaborate through music.  More Info below.
