Manhattan's greatest sounds performed live
1930s New York was a hub of musical innovation, riotous partying and illicit libations. Amidst the heady brew of decadence and hedonism, some of the century’s most exciting jazz players honed their craft. The BBC's Alyn Shipton will introduce this whistle stop tour of the era’s finest sounds, from Louis Armstrong to Billie Holiday. The band are amazing and the songs are classics. It’s a recipe for one hell of a night.
"Go and hear them the next chance you get, whatever age you are. Its memory will add joyous years to your life."
