Together

This video features Wynton Marsalis and his band and is one in a series of videos adapted from Jazz for Young People: What is New Orleans Jazz? Wynton tells the story of New Orleans before the age of jazz music. He describes how the citizens of the city once had many conflicts with each other; but Buddy Bolden, a cornetist and early jazz originator, brought them together through music by highlighting their shared feelings and daily experiences. Working together to create a conversation through music is referred to as "collective improvisation." For more about collective improvisation, see "Collective Improvisation" and "Musical Conversations."
