    Jazz Alley

    From 1958 and through the 1960's, the surviving big bands repositioned themselves. They continued to swing, but also became hothouses for new sounds and ambitious composition.

    Jazz Alley covers the full spectrum of jazz styles from New Orleans to New York, and from Sicily to Scandinavia.  Featuring the best in classic and contemporary jazz, focusing on the curious, quirky, obscure and neglected.
