Stolen Moments emphasizes the ways in which jazz has acted as a unifying force, bridging cultural, ethnic and economic differences.The performance aims to illustrate how jazz rapidly evolved from the single expression of the African-American experience to an ever-flourishing world music that has transcended ethnic and cultural boundaries.Featuring large screen projections, an original short documentary film and new arrangements of classic jazz tunes, Stolen Moments highlights the interplay between the jazz movement and the evolution of American culture throughout the 20th century.
