So far, we have broadcast ninety-nine one-hour programs to tell the story of the first 100 years of recorded jazz. We have heard the creative work of hundreds of players, composers, arrangers, and bandleaders, famous and obscure. Each of the contributors to this rich history had colleagues and bandmates with whom they played as they grew up and matured; teachers formal and informal; and mentors. They played in basements, living rooms, classrooms, high school gyms, churches, clubs and theaters. They were part of a local scene. All jazz is local.
In this, the final, hour of Jazz at 100, we will celebrate the local scene... our local scene ... the wonderful jazz scene of Charlottesville, Virginia.
