This is the 98th of 100 programs in the Jazz at 100 series. The programs have chronologically followed the history of recorded jazz and, as we approach the present, the question of historical perspective becomes relevant. Just how well can we predict what will endure? What will have lasting importance?

We are in the midst of a five-program series featuring one selection per year, starting in 1990, in an attempt to forecast the answers to these questions. Our methodology owes much to a 2001 Gary Giddins essay, "Postwar Jazz: An Arbitrary Roadmap (1945—2001)." Jazz in the late 2000s, in this hour of Jazz at 100.
