The Birth of 'Rhapsody in Blue' - Paul Whiteman's Historic Aeolian Hall Concert of 1924

NI2584
£14.99

Details

The selections Whiteman included in the 1924 Aeolian Hall Concert, which had that curious title ‘An Experiment in Modern Music,’ were divided into various sections, such as ‘The True Form of Jazz’ and ‘Recent Compositions with Modern Score.’ The intention was that together they would be audible proof that jazz-inspired music had come of age.
