The 1959 Project

I came across a reference to this site this morning. I figured many of you might find it a useful bit of jazz education. It’s aim is to provide a “snapshot of jazz 60 years ago, every day.” There’s some fascinating stuff here. Enjoy! :sunglasses:


Yes they are playing daily from this this on public radio this morning
Very cool! I will start every morning with this day in1959 with my coffee.

Thanks Scott
Great memories of those days back in late 50’s

I came across a reference to this New York Times article. I thought some of you might be interested. It has a photo of a jam session with Monk, Mingus, Haynes, and Parker.
