    Welcome

    Welcome to American Jazz of the 40's and 50's: Theatre, film, and beyond! This guide provides resources for those interested in the American jazz and big band movement and its trancendence through culture from the 40's to contemporary film, music, and theatre. You will find information about classic jazz artists, jazz in theatre and film as well as jazz in American culture. Each page features favorite jazz moments associated with the theme of the page. Improvisation is a character of jazz recordings so you may find several recordings as unique sources. So if it don't mean a thing...you're in the right place. Enjoy!

    Note: this is a living guide, check for updates
