Jazz & Rock

Encouraged by positive response to the Ahmet Ertegun presentation in April 2019,  we are pursuing the exploration of the history of Rock and Roll, Blues, Jazz from 1930’s to the present: The Secret history of Rock-n-Roll.  The title is “secret” because we will go deeper than the mass media to explore the “real” heroes of this music.  Some are well known and some are totally unknown outside the music circles. For example, did you know that a song from the Ottoman Empire in Hijaz mode became a major hit in the USA and the theme music of a popular Hollywood movie from 1990’s? We hope that this interesting activity will be toe-tapping fun.

Due to t he pandemic, Jazz&Rock activities have been moved to “online activities”. See them on the “On line activities” page.
