1959 Redux

This post will tie up some loose ends from the 1959 - Year That Changed Jazz series. To recap, the series also included articles on each of the four albums that markedly changed jazz:
  1. Kind of Blue, Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3
  2. Time Out
  3. Ah Um
  4. The Shape of Jazz to Come
Add to the list of articles and references that complete the picture: Geoff Barber's 1959: A Great Year in Jazz, and Matthew Kahut's Meltdown: The Year Jazz Threw Out the Rules.

Finally, 1959 - The Year Everything Changed discusses the year in broad strokes that address cultural, political, artistic and other aspects that came to a head in 1959. This puts jazz into a context that overlaps areas that comprise the bigger picture.
