Burgundy Jazz is a multiplatform web documentary exploring
Montreal’s incredible contribution to jazz music history through the legendary
black musicians of Little Burgundy – the neighbourhood that was a hub of
musical creativity, private clubs and speakeasies from the Jazz Age 1920s to
the Golden Era of Jazz in the 1940s and 50s. Oscar Peterson, Oliver Jones,
Norman Marshall Villeneuve, the Sealey Brothers, Nelson Symonds, and Louis
Metcalf are among the greats who lived or played in "Burgundy".
accompanying Burgundy Jazz Teacher Resource Guide, aimed at
educators at the elementary (Grades 6-8) and secondary school levels, supports
learning initiatives for each platform: web doc, app and eBook. It is designed
to link to a variety of disciplines and subject matters, including Arts Education
(Music), Social Sciences (Geography and History) and Language Arts, while
leveraging Media Education/Media Literacy, critical thinking and Citizenship
Education. Students are invited to think about social themes raised in Burgundy Jazz while they broach
inquiry-based learning and media production. Explore the guide’s
research-creation projects highlighting technology education, with low-tech
options also available.
