Program notes

JATP – Jazz at the Philharmonic – are the four mythical letters representing a series of concerts that helped the world fall in love with jazz. Norman Granz was behind the project, the man known as the "most successful impresario in the history of jazz." He worked with the likes of Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie and Charlie Parker ... the list goes on and on. The JATP series was shot between the 40s and the 60s, aiming to showcase the world's best jazz artists and, from 1958-60, the series went to Paris. Here, before a crowd of established jazz lovers (the post-war years saw an explosion of the genre in France), the Pleyel arena played host to a music vibrating with the innovation of previous decades, capturing the vivacious zeitgeist of an increasingly developed, progressive and complex world.
