The Boston Jazz Chronicles
Jazz. It’s African-American music. It's the music of the American experience. It's music that has some deep roots in Boston. Originating in New Orleans and proliferating in New York, the swinging snap, crackle, and pop of jazz has made an enduring mark in Beantown. From the Savoy to Storyville, its venues have been the stomping grounds for fans and the stopping grounds for jazz giants and homegrown heroes.

In his new book, The Boston Jazz Chronicles, Boston jazz historian Dick Vacca writes about Boston’s jazz scene between the late 1930s and early 1960s. It was an era where Prohibition was long forgotten, big bands were packing the dance halls, and local legends like George Wein and Father Norman O’Connor, also known as "Jazz Priest", were making an indelible mark on the way our city sounds.

GUESTS:
  Eric Jackson, host of Jazz on WGBH with Eric Jackson
  Dick Vacca, author of The Boston Jazz Chroniles: Faces, Places, Nightlife 1937-1962
