Vortex discussion 59 – What’s in a name?

The word “jazz” covers a whole range of styles – from the ‘historic’ through to ‘free improv’. How important is this? How inclusive?

Over the years, not just in the names, but there have been many factions! The resistance to evolution, the resistance to bebop and more. How tolerant are the participants?

The “trad” versus “modern” debate in the UK even led to a riot at Beaulieu Jazz Festival in 1961. So we may all love jazz, but do we in jazz always love each other?

Today’s discussion, led by Oliver Weindling, will cover some of these topics. Open to all. (We’re very tolerant and forgiving).
