BBC - 1959 The Year that Changed Jazz [MP4-AAC](oan)
1959 was the seismic year jazz broke away from complex bebop music to new forms, allowing soloists
unprecedented freedom to explore and express. It was also a pivotal year for America: the nation
was finding its groove, enjoying undreamt-of freedom and wealth social, racial and upheavals were
just around the corner and jazz was ahead of the curve.
Four major jazz albums were made, each a high watermark for the artists and a powerful reflection of
the times. Each opened up dramatic new possibilities for jazz which continue to be felt Miles Davis
Kind of Blue Dave Brubeck, Time Out Charles Mingus, Mingus Ah Um; and Ornette Coleman, The Shape of
Jazz to Come.
Rarely seen archive performances help vibrantly bring the era to life and explore what made these albums
vital both in 1959 and the 50 years since. The programme contains interviews with Lou Reed, Dave Brubeck,
Ornette Coleman, Charlie Haden, Herbie Hancock, Joe Morello (Brubecks drummer) and Jimmy Cobb (the only
surviving member of Miles band) along with a host of jazz movers and shakers from the 50s and beyond.
