Today in Music History – Jazz Music Breaks the Culture Barrier

It was 69 years ago today, on January 18, 1944, that the  New York City Metropolitan Opera House opened its doors to a whole new audience by hosting its first-ever jazz concert.

Among the jazz legends performing that evening, were   Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, Coleman Hawkins and Lionel Hampton.

We were able to locate this rare, original recording from the event,  featuring “Sachmo” and trumpet player Roy Eldridge playing “Mop Mop.”  We hope you enjoy it.  If so, please let us know by leaving a comment below.
