I've been asked to teach the history of jazz as part of a music appreciation
class which concentrates on "Classical Music". The class would last 1 to 1.5
hours. It will be done using "St. Louis Blues" to illustrate the various
stages of jazz. Missing would be the early New Orleans style(s). Would it be
safe to say that Bunk Johnson or George Lewis circa the '40s - '60s would be
appropriate? What about the NO marching bands?


Thanks for your thoughts;
