Houston’s music scene tends to fly under the radar, which may be why a unique “Houston sound” has emerged over and over, across multiple genres, to influence national and international musicians. Over time, memory of these pivotal home-grown moments has faded, but that history lives on in rare recordings, photographs, and other documents in local special collections.

In this course, subscribers will visit three special-collection libraries to discover how jazz, folk, and hip hop music have been shaped by Houston musicians who carved out a distinctive, visionary Houston sound.
