Fifty Years Ago Comes Online Today at Wolfgang's Vault

Nov 10, 2009

In case you haven't read the New York Times story today, Wolfgang's Vault, the wonderful online resource for concerts recorded during or by Bill Graham's staff and consultants, has begun streaming music from the 1959 Newport Jazz Festival. Performances available so far include sets by Count Basie, singer Dakota Staton and Art Blakey & the Jazz Messengers, featuring Lee Morgan.

More is to come soon, as are famous performances like Miles Davis' legendary set at Tanglewood in 1970 when he shared a bill with Santana.

Visit early and often to listen to these unearthed gems.
