The Year In Jazz: 1958

In this series, we take one year and listen to one recording per month, accompanied by the front page of the New York Times from the date of the recording. This establishes a context in both world history and jazz music for what was happening during the very busy and innovative year. We will hear from Louis Armstrong, the Modern Jazz Quartet, Ornette Coleman, Kid Ory, Abbey Lincoln, Sonny Rolins, John Coltrane, MilessDavis and others.
