About this event


We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, November 9, 2021.

Jazz reveals the guitar in one of its most beautiful and demanding contexts. History, music and anecdotes, from early banjo to modern performers. This "preview" of the upcoming fall course will highlight the life of Charlie Christian, whose brilliant playing not only bridged the gap between 1930s swing jazz and 1940s modern bebop, but also created wide acceptance for Gibson's first commercially successful electric guitar. His influence is felt in every generation of guitar players that followed.
