Music In Detroit and Michigan: The Legend Continues: Day Pass 4/7- Jazz in Post-WWII Detroit: The Performers and their Contributions
Detroit has made significant contributions to jazz music since the early years of the 20th Century, including the contemporary era. However, Detroit is best known for contributing to the development of the bebop style and nurturing a large number of jazz performers who emerged in the 1950s and 1960s to national and international prominence. In this presentation the primary focus will be on some of those performers and the nature of their contributions. Vincent Chandler is a native Detroiter. He earned two degrees at the University of Michigan: Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music and a Master of Music in Improvisation. He was a 2020 Kresge Artist Fellow. He is now an Assistant Professor in Jazz Studies and Jazz Trombone at Wayne State University. He has studied and/or performed with such Detroit jazz artists as Marcus Belgrave, James Carter, Geri Allen and Rodney Whitaker, as well as here and abroad with Wynton Marsalis, Roy Hargrove and Ravi Coltrane. He is a notable sideman, composer/arranger, scat singer and bandleader.
