The Storyville of Jass - https://vimeo.com/564190583
Robert Irving III, 9-Year collaborator with the legendary Miles Davis
as producer, music director and composer, is also a long-time
Educator and Mentor with the Jazz Institute of Chicago. His unique
master class reveals obscured history of “J-A-S-S” (its original spelling)
and brings contextual clarity to Storyville, the red-light district in New Orleans that gave birth to a new musical art form with musicians straight from a particular Catholic Church that (still during slavery) had white, free black, slaves and native American parishioners. This is a rare and fascinating revelation of the true history of America and its original music we call Jazz.
