It’s time for a bit of music and also a bit of history with today’s Life In 360°. We’re off to America and to the city of New Orleans for a lesson in jazz courtesy of Google Expeditions.
Legendary trumpeter Louis Armstrong once said “If you have to ask what jazz is, you’ll never know.” However you can indeed learn a little about The New Orleans Jazz Orchestra (NOJO) and their work to keep the sounds born in New Orleans a part of the place. Soledad O’Brien talks to NOJO’s Irvin Mayfield on Jazz’s resurgence at the People’s Health New Orleans Jazz Market and out on the famous Bourbon Street.
Life In 360 will return to VRFocus this Friday.
