In early 1917, the Original Dixieland Jazz Band made the first jazz recording. Over the next 100 years we have heard transcendent leaps of creativity and staggering virtuosity; we have experienced the music of crushing pain, breathless romance, anger, exhilaration and humor. Jazz at 100 is a series of 100 one-hour programs that tells the story of the first 100 years of jazz history.
Jazz at 100 Today! is the successor series, that gives voice to the current jazz scene and shares the music of working artists recording today through recordings from the past decade. Support living artists and the future of this great music!
