More Jazz at the Philharmonic

We recently ran a story about a long-lost reel-to-reel tape of a 1956 Seattle Jazz at the Philharmonic concert at the old Civic Auditorium that was rediscovered and issued as a CD. (Read that story here.) Not to be outdone, University of Washington archivist John Vallier has informed us of a recent bequest to Suzallo Library of a mountain of tapes made by legendary Seattle sound recordist Bert Porter. Among them is a 1952 Jazz at the Phil concert in Seattle featuring pianist Oscar Peterson, bassist Ray Brown, guitarist Herb Ellis, drummer Buddy Rich and clarinetist Buddy DeFranco. Vallier says it’s a smokin’ show.

He is putting it up on a live stream at 2 p.m. Tuesday, July 10. Listen to it here.
