Music is very important to global culture. However, in today's world, most forget to look back and realize how influential jazz was in music across the ages. With the time provided for this show, a jazz album will be selected and talked about. Specifically, the background of the album and its composition will discussed. Then the album would be front to back, or, in the case of a double LP, only the most influential pieces will be played. If a phonograph is available, playing the record on wax would be preferable.
