Black British Jazz

Description

What is Black British Jazz? This short film on the OpenLearn site explores the research carried out by The Open University What is Black British Jazz research team led by Dr Jason Toynbee, who has been examining the history of Black British jazz and the stories of the artists who have performed it. This video looks at the history of jazz and how the story dates back as far as 1919, documenting how successive waves of Black musicians have contributed to developing new and uniquely British sounds, as well as addressing the problematic issues surrounding race and cultural identity. Released October 2009, this is available as a video at the OpenLearn link and via iTunesU.
