Jazz history, live performance, classic audio and exciting video make Koret Discover Jazz the most distinctive jazz appreciation course available for adults.

The low end is primary in the development and evolution of jazz music. In our first spring Discover Jazz series, we will go in depth on the bass, showcasing the development, sounds, influential musicians, and legacy of the instrument. In the hands of some of the most creative jazz musicians, we will highlight how the bass grew from a simple background instrument to a primary creative force and explore the contributions of our most admired bassists, including Charlie Haden, Sam Jones, Paul Chambers, Ron Carter, Dave Holland, Jimmy Blanton and Charles Mingus among many others. Joining us will be several world-renowned bassists and many special guest artists. Taught by bassist and educator Cory Combs, this course may be enjoyed individually or as a series.
