Excursions with Dr. Art Cromwell: “Jazz Made in Detroit” 

The emergence of Jazz in major U.S. cities reached an apotheosis in Detroit from 1950-1970. During this period several waves of Jazz artists swept out of the Motor City to contribute to the growth and expansion of Jazz nationwide. These musicians were a testament to the city’s vibrant arts community, and the generation of mentors, whose protégés broadened Jazz’s expressive palette.

Saturday’s Excursions begins a multi-part exploration of Detroit’s Jazz contributions with samplings from artists who were part of four generations of “Jazz Made in Detroit.”

Tune in to Excursions for Part One on WOUB’s Radio Free Athens, April 6, from 6-9 EDT.
