Today we heard concerts that came to Carnegie Hall. We began with Benny Goodman's famous 1938 concert, the first time Jazz made it to the concert hall. Following that was John Hammond's 1938-1939 series, From Spirituals to Swing, in which he made an explicit point to feature African American artists who had been denied by white audiences. Dizzy and Bird were the first to bring Bebop to Carnegie Hall in September of 1947, and later that year Dizzy (+ Chano Pozo + George Russell) brought Latin Jazz to Carnegie Hall. Finally, we heard the 1949 Christmas All-Stars concert.
