Why is Jazz Plaza 2011 dedicated to classic music?

African music, blues and classic music were the main elements about Jazz origin in the United States.

Jazz, as a musical style, participates in many ways in several classic music contexts considering that it links to the popular music existing field in its social- musical sense but it identifies with classic music in the cult context of formation and understanding. Therefore we are dedicating the 27th edition to CLASSIC MUSIC IN JAZZ.
