This poster started as a graduate school project, and represents hundreds of hours of research and graphics work. You will enjoy using this poster to clarify the essential periods of jazz history and to point out the most acclaimed jazz giants on each instrument. After showing the primary elements that evolved into the early jazz of New Orleans, the timeline continues into the swing, bebop, post bop, and fusion periods. In addition to individual innovators, a "big band tradition" ribbon shows the most important big bands of each era.
The poster can be printed up to 4' long with high resolution graphics, and will look attractive on your band room wall. Download now for FREE as a JPG or PDF file, compliments of StepWise Publications, from our Free Music Posters page (click here).
