Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Thursday, January 17, 2013 - 11:00am

Jazz was born in New Orleans but rapidly traveled to Chicago, New York City and eventually to Los Angeles, changing its form and style along the way. The history of early jazz is a complex story of culture, race, and the changing technologies that allowed jazz to be heard by larger and larger audiences. Tune in tonight when we speak with COURT CARNEY, Assistant Professor of History at Stephen F. Austin University, about his wonderful new musical history CUTTIN’ UP: HOW EARLY JAZZ GOT AMERICA’S EAR.
