Albany -- Albany State University got a national grant to show a six-part series on jazz music.

"Looking at Jazz, America's Art Form" videos will be shown at the James Pendergrast Memorial Library throughout the next two months, followed by discussions of the jazz-related topic.

The videos look into the origin and history of the American music genre.

"A lot of people are very interested in jazz and its origins, and its history, and we've got a lot of people even in our community who listen to jazz as a technique for relaxing," said Dr. LaVerne McLaughlin.

ASU's library was one of 50 libraries nationwide chosen to show the series with major funding coming from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

To see a schedule of the remaining shows visit www.lookatjazz.com under Georgia screenings.
