Event description

Description

What are the sounds of a jazz band? And on what instruments can you play jazz? We are familiar with the sections of the orchestra and the instruments each contains, but is there a set line-up of instruments in a jazz band?

The early bands in New Orleans utilised instruments available from marching bands and army surplus so included clarinets, trumpets, trombones, drums, brass bass and in the halls, clubs, ‘speakeasies’ and brothels, the piano was available. That was 100 years ago, so does this still hold true?

Jeannie McInnes will be exploring some of the instruments that have become familiar in jazz bands, and some not so familiar. It will also be an opportunity to hear how the instruments have affected the music and how the song affected the instrumentation.
