The Dunsmuir Community Resource Center (DCRC) and musician, Victor Martin are hosting Jazz, the 2000 documentary miniseries directed by Ken Burns on Thursday, March  29, at 6:00pm


Jazz is “A history of America’s Music, and  has been called the purest expression of American democracy; a music built on individualism and compromise, independence and cooperation. Jazz is America’s greatest cultural achievement. “   states  PBS.org


This film is an in-depth account of  the contributions of African Americans to the development of jazz and blues, true American art forms. There will be live performances as examples of styles and discussions.


Victor reported that Louis Armstrong and his band played music at Judges, in Dunsmuir. Segregation prevented traveling bands from staying at the very hotels where they were playing. To solve this problem Louis Armstrong and his band traveled in their own railroad car.


The 4th and final  film in the series will be presented at the DCRC located on 5740 Dunsmuir Ave at 6:00-8:30pm. They offer hor d'oeuvres and beverages for a $3.00 donation. For more information call (530)235-4400. All of the donations will go toward the purchase of a DVD player. They are currently borrowing the equipment from Siskiyou TV.

The National Endowment for the Arts has a web-based Jazz in the Schools program.  "The National Endowment for the Arts and Jazz at Lincoln Center have created these new materials to introduce you to the captivating sounds and stories of jazz and to build important connections for your students between the music and our nation’s history.


Jazz is one of America’s great indigenous art forms, born from generations of African Americans who synthesized different musical traditions into an entirely new sound. Jazz speaks profoundly of the American experience because of its democratic nature, both in its practice, through the collaborative and improvisational qualities of performance, and its important social role as an early meeting place for people of different races."  For more information contact NEA Jazz in the Schools
