From The Vaults – Jazz Performances From the ’20s to the ’60s

Ragtime, swing, bebop, vocalese– jazz wears many hats and wears them well. The music is all about innovation and the names associated with that innovation are forever etched in the storied history of this music.

(more...) continues our Jazz+Film series with a peak into the vaults, unveiling rare footage of jazz architects from the ’20s, ’30s, ’40s, ’50s and ’60s. Duke Ellington and his Orchestra with Symphony in Black: A Rhapsody of Negro Life from 1935, Bessie Smith and her St Louis Blues from 1929, Lionel Hampton, Coleman Hawkins, Stan Kenton, whew! We’ll have jazz pros on hand to tell the story of this very special collection. – GARVIA BAILEY
