RHYTHM & RE­AC­TION: THE AGE OF JAZZ IN BRI­TAIN

Evening Standard - West End Final Extra - ES Homes and Property - - Events -

Un­til April 22 at Two Tem­ple Place, WC2 (twotem­ple­place.org). JAZZ hit Bri­tain 100 years ago in the af­ter­math of the First World War. It was adored by some and re­viled by oth­ers, but artists, in­clud­ing pain­ters William Roberts and Ed­ward Burra and the pain­ter and sculp­tor Frank Dobson, fed on the sounds that swept night­clubs and dance halls.

The new mu­sic seeped deep into Bri­tish cul­ture, spawn­ing jazz­in­flu­enced Lon­don Un­der­ground posters, left, Arthur San­der­son tex­tiles, Carl­ton Ware ce­ram­ics in­clud­ing this Thir­ties vase, left, by Enoch Boul­ton, and more. See it all and hear the mu­sic free at this lively show in a neo-Gothic man­sion that’s worth ex­plor­ing in its own right, and only open for such ma­jor events.
