The Following Are Excerpts From A Wikipedia Entry Regarding This Live Program On CBS:


"The Sound of Jazz"
 is a 1957 edition of the CBS television series Seven Lively Arts, and was one of the first major programs featuring jazz to air on American network television.

Overview

The one-hour program aired on Sunday, December 8, 1957, at 5 p.m. Eastern Time, live from CBS Studio 58, the Town Theater at 851 Ninth Avenue in New York City. The show was hosted by New York Herald-Tribune media critic John Crosby, directed by Jack Smight, and produced by Robert Herridge. Jazz writers Nat Hentoff and Whitney Balliett were the primary music consultants.

The Sound of Jazz brought together 32 leading musicians from the swing era including Count Basie, Lester Young, Ben Webster, Billie Holiday, Jo Jones and Coleman Hawkins; the Chicago style players of the same era, like Henry "Red" Allen, Vic Dickenson, and Pee Wee Russell; and younger 'modernist' musicians such as Gerry Mulligan, Thelonious Monk, and Jimmy Giuffre. These players played separately with their compatriots (see the song list below), but also joined to combine various styles in one group, such as Red Allen's group and the group backing Billie Holiday on "Fine and Mellow".

The show's performance of "Fine and Mellow" reunited Billie Holiday with her estranged long-time friend Lester Young for the final time. Jazz critic Nat Hentoff, who was involved in the show, recalled that during rehearsals, they kept to opposite sides of the room. Young was very weak, and Hentoff told him to skip the big band section of the show and that he could sit while performing in the group with Holiday.

During the performance of "Fine and Mellow", Webster played the first solo. "Then", Hentoff remembered:

Lester got up, and he played the purest blues I have ever heard, and [he and Holiday] were looking at each other, their eyes were sort of interlocked, and she was sort of nodding and half–smiling. It was as if they were both remembering what had been—whatever that was. And in the control room we were all crying. When the show was over, they went their separate ways.[1]

Within two years, both Young and Holiday had died.

Noting that the cameras were employed as "straight reportorial tools", Jack Gould observed in a New York Times review: "It was the art of video improvisation wedded to the art of musical improvisation; the effect was an hour of enormously creative and fresh TV."[2]

The Sound of Jazz was also released as a recording by CBS' then-subsidiary, Columbia Records, although the gramophone version is actually a rehearsal that preceded the telecast (recorded on December 4 at Columbia's 30th Street studios), and is not its soundtrack. The LP was released in 1958 as Columbia CL 1098, with liner notes by Eric Larrabee, and the cover photo by Tom Yee. It is the only LP of a Seven Lively Arts presentation. The recording does not include all of the performers on the TV show (Mulligan refused to participate because no additional payment was involved) and includes several who were not on the show. Bassist Walter Page rehearsed, and is featured on the LP, but collapsed on the way to the studio for the telecast. In the early 1980s Bob Hilbert's Pumpkin Records released the LP The Real Sound of Jazz which is the actual soundtrack to the television program.

Policies
Policy Information Back to Top

Our return policy should be read in light of our commitment to providing a description of the items offered for sale based on our best effort (after many years of experience dealing in, trading, and being a licensed appraiser of such merchandise), to accurately describe what is being offered for sale.  For instance, our use of the word antique complies with the U.S. government s definition of the term and constitutes our warranty that the item is at least 100 years old.   Other items that reflect bygone days, but are not yet antique, are commonly referred to as vintage.    Further, you should know that reference to certain time periods can be guides to the buyer, such as Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Victorian, Ming, Ch ing, Sung, or Meiji.  Items carrying such descriptions reflect the seller s judgment and experience and, accordingly, pricing.   It is also important to note that there is a significant distinction between something being of a certain period, versus being made in the style of the period.   Unscrupulous competitors may confuse the two; we do not.  

 

If you can articulate why our description is in error, we will accept return of your purchase as stated in our "Terms" so long as we hear from you in advance and you absorb the cost of insured shipping.   That means, as e-Bay policy clearly states, buyer s remorse is no reason for a return, nor is changing your mind for other reasons; you have to tell us what we said or showed that was not true.

 

Because we want you to get what you expect from a respected seller, we strongly urge you to make inquiry -- to seek clarification if you have any concerns before you bid on an item.   Please be mindful that unless an item is listed as new, it should be considered pre-owned and used to the extent of normal wear and tear.  For a more detailed report on a used item s condition, please correspond with us.  Doubts should be resolved in advance and we can only do that if you contact us about your concerns before bidding.   If you don t do that, be prepared to tell us exactly how we misrepresented an item or consider the sale to be final.   We can only ensure full satisfaction if you do your part.

 

Lastly, we adhere to e-Bay s buyer satisfaction policies and to federal and state laws.  Venue for resolution of any legal dispute is Palm Beach County, Florida.
