JAZZ THROUGH THE DECADES SPOTIFY PLAYLISTS
Jazz Music has continuously developed since its birth just before the turn of the twentieth century. Our Trustees board have put together an introductionary list of (what they consider) ten essential jazz tracks for every one of the music’s decade starting from the 1920s. We hope you enjoy listening to our selection.
THEY ALL PLAYED THE 100 CLUB
We ran a National Lottery Heritage Funded project titled 'Jazz at the 100 Club: Bringing History to Life". One of the focus points was titled 'voices from the past'. We produced numerous exciting projects under this heading including collaborative art projects with South Essex College and our first book publication 'Ace of Clubs'. This playlist pairs with the film title 'They All Played The 100 Club' produced under educational means by South Essex College students. The film shows iconic American and British performers in selective snippets of interview and film. Similarly, this Spotify playlist collates a selection of jazz musicians that have performed at The 100 Club.
WOMEN IN JAZZ SPOTIFY PLAYLIST
Within our breaking Barriers project we explored the topics women in music and women in jazz with musicians Lara Jones and Aydenne Simone. Jazz Music and the wider music industry has been shown to have a gender imbalance and presents barriers in the way that it promotes, educates and celebrates the music.
There are many women in jazz music to discover through the decades and a multitude on the contemporary jazz scene. This playlist is an introduction to and celebration of women in jazz music to get you started.
