Jazz, the quintessential American music, traveled all the way to Europe and back before becoming a part of the orchestral canon here in its native country. Composers like George Gershwin ultimately became masters of using the sounds of jazz in the symphony hall. A five-piece combo from The Colored Musicians Club of Buffalo will join the BPO Thursday, January 21 at 7 p.m. to illustrate Buffalo’s important role in the birth of jazz in America. Stefan Sanders conducts. Stay after the concert to continue the conversation at a party in the Mary Seaton Room with music by the George Scott Big Band. Stefan Sanders spoke with WNED.
