Jazz with Jim – Jazz in the 2000s
Past Event

BIMA’s Jazz with Jim lecture series teaches what to listen for and how to recognize defining stylistic characteristics, while simultaneously placing the amazing music within its social and historical context.

This session of Jim will explore the topic “Jazz in the 2000s”—amazing instrumentalists, vocalists, and ensembles whose diverse music drives the art form forward while ushering in new generations of fans and participants.


Serving as a full-time professor of music at Seattle Central College since 1993, Jim has developed and teaches a variety of music history classes including World Music, American Popular Music, Rock Music: History and Perspectives, Music in The Western World, and History of Jazz in traditional face-to-face, online, and seminar modes of delivery. In 2011, Jim was invited to join the faculty at Olympic College where he has developed and teaches online offerings in World Music, Music In Film and Television, and History of American Popular Music. Jim is a Past-President of the Washington Community College Humanities Association, and served as Director of Instrumental Music at California High School in San Ramon, CA from 1979 to 1993. As a music educator in both K-12 and higher education, Jim has had the pleasure of sharing the art of music with his students for 40 years. He looks forward to doing the same with you here as we explore the eclectic array of composers, performing artists, and genre specific recordings comprising the wonderful art of Jazz.
