In 100 one-hour programs, the series Jazz at 100 told the story of recorded jazz. It established the foundations upon which the broadly diverse music of today is built. This is the first hour of the successor series which aims to give voice to the current jazz scene and appreciates its countless creators.

In 1965, the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians was founded with the motto, "Great Black Music, Ancient to the Future." In 2015, AACM celebrated its fiftieth anniversary and this week we focus on recent strong outings from Nicole Mitchell, Mike Reed, Tomeka Reid and Matana Roberts, has been having a compelling renewal.
