This is the 95th of 100 programs in the Jazz at 100 series. For 94 programs, we have moved on a roughly chronological path through 100 years of jazz recordings, following trends, introducing major players and stylistic evolutions. As we approach the present, we face the historian's dilemma: in more recent music, what performances will have lasting value? What players will be remembered for their contributions to advancing the music? What trends will turn into dominant themes?
