As part of Black History Month Queen Mary’s College, Basingstoke invited the reknown Jazz pianist and free improviser Pat Thomas to talk about the origins and development of Jazz. Pat Thomas traces the word Jazz to its Arabic origins and explains the deep-rooted West African and islamic musical traditions found in the amalgam of cultures which we know as Jazz today. This is followed by a performance of improvised music.
