Event description

Description

Library of Congress Jazz Scholar 2018-19

An erudite and elegant stylist, pianist and composer Aaron Diehl takes up the enviable task of the Library’s jazz scholars: to delve deeply into our rich archives and examine a few of our treasures. His Blues and the Spanish Tinge recital tracks the essential ingredients in the creation of jazz. You can discover just a few of them in the manuscripts we’ll have on display from our collections, from Jelly Roll Morton, James P. Johnson, George Gershwin, and newly arrived material by Fats Waller.

Presented in cooperation with the Reva & David Logan Foundation
