The Gold Standard
In textbooks, the Golden Age of Jazz refers to the music of the '20s, '30s and '40s. But, to the modern ear, the sounds of the '50s, '60s and '70s tend to be what we think of when we're talking "classic jazz". Join host Andrew Dowd as he presents The Gold Standard, exploring jazz's new "Golden Age". From classic label output, to the trends and styles of the time, to the musicians who made it happen—the Gold Standard is solid, start to finish.
