Screening |
The first jazz recordings were made by The Original Dixieland Jazz Band in 1917. Today we’re much more likely to be celebrating the birthdays of three great jazz artists, Ella Fitzgerald, Dizzy Gillespie, and Thelonious Monk, all of them born in 1917. Happily, there is great film footage for all three, documenting their youthful as well as their mature moments as performers.
