Varis Leichtman Studio

Jazz 101, with Seton Hawkins

Week Five: BeBop

Can’t commit to a full course? Single classes are now available at Swing University for $35 each (fees may apply).

Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Bud Powell, and more built up a new style called BeBop, bringing a new rhythmic vitality and virtuosity to the music. As the big band wave was just beginning to break, BeBop arrived on the scene as an exciting and controversial new approach to Jazz. Its performance style would radically alter the face of the music, and would fundamentally change the way we play it, hear it, and think about it.
