DESCRIPTION: Library of Congress Jazz Scholar Dan Morgenstern lectures on Louis Armstrong and his second wife, Lil Hardin Armstrong. The couple met in King Oliver's band and, individually and together, created an impressive body of music, preserved on records and in the fascinating manuscript deposits held in the Library's collections.
Richard James Burgess, John Edward, and Dan Morgenstern discuss “Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology,” which includes 111 tracks showcasing artists at their best and most influential. They talk about the turning points in the history of jazz through its legendary innovators—Armstrong, Ellington, Basie, Parker, Gillespie, Davis, Hancock, Corea, Marsalis—and notable styles from early ragtime, to international modernism, and every major movement in between.
