This is the 96th of 100 programs in the Jazz at 100 series. As we present more recent music, we face the historian's dilemma, 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? We are following the lead of critic Gary Giddins who wrote an essay entitled "Postwar Jazz: An Arbitrary Roadmap (1945—2001)" where he told the story of post-war jazz through a discussion of one musical selection from each year.
