History of Jazz: Part IV
Eric Jackson radio host, WGBH 89.7FM
Eric Jackson examines a variety of perspectives, providing firsthand insight into the legacy of jazz in Boston from its beginnings in the early 20th century to today. During the Civil Rights Movement, more clubs opened in white neighborhoods. So whites that were jazz fans didn't have to drive to Roxbury or Dorchester to hear the music. They could drive to Cambridge or Kenmore Square. As different locations became the home of jazz music in Boston, the music itself also began to change. Max Roach makes a similar observation about New York in Dizzy Gillespie's book To Be or Not to Bop, when he writes about 52nd street.
Eric Jackson is host of WGBH's Jazz with Eric in the Evening. Eric has been a jazz host for more than 30 years, is an avid collector of jazz recordings and literature, and a lecturer on jazz history at the Longy School of Music.
