A performance of the jazz song 'Slick City Spats' with accompanying animation.

This clip is from:
Music Makers, In the City
First broadcast:
27 February 1998

This clip could be used as part of a plenary to help summarise and reinforce the learning objectives: what makes this a jazz song? Perhaps ask the children to identify the pulse and the rhythm and clap them out. Or you could use the clip to look at different instruments. Perhaps show musical instruments on the board and ask the children to pick the ones they think they can hear. Or you could use the clip to spark off the imagination of the children. Perhaps play the first bars of the music before the vocals set in and ask the children to think of an animal. Can they imagine this animal walking and dancing to the music? Invite them to discuss their choice.
