Where classical meets jazz
Classical Jazz is the fusion of the timeless international and beloved classical music styles and several modern composers with the original American jazz art form. It’s where classical meets jazz.
You will often hear jazz musicians say “Bach’s body of work is perfect jazz material”. And, we might add, not just Bach…. Even modern composers like Gershwin (1898-1937), Satie (1866-1925), Aaron Copland (1900-1990) , Elmer Bernstein (1922-2004) and jazz legend, the late Dave Brubeck… had the musical creative instinct to compose original Classical Jazz scores that have become timeless in their listenability and forever popular in their appeal. Even more recently, Claude Bolling, born in Cannes, France in 1930, has composed and recorded many hours of original Classical Jazz all of which can now be heard on Classical Jazz Radio 24 hours a day. ~ Rich Germaine, President – Media Arts Institute, LLC
