  • Born Too Early . . .

    Reading an article in the Jazz Times mag, they show a handbill for a show the day after Thanksgiving, 1957. Two shows, 8:30 and midnight, Carnegie Hall. For as little as $2 ($3.95 for the best seats, all tax exempt - it was a benefit) you get the following:

    Billie Holiday
    Dizzy Gillespie
    Ray Charles
    Chet Baker with Zoot Sims
    Thelonius Monk with John Coltrane
    Sonny Rollins

    They don’t make concerts like that anymore . . .

    That's pretty cool; too bad Miles Davis wasn't in the line-up 8)
