Library of Congress Jazz Scholar 2018-19

An erudite and elegant stylist, pianist and composer Aaron Diehl takes up the enviable task of the Library’s jazz scholars: to delve deeply into our rich archives and examine a few of our treasures. His Blues and the Spanish Tinge recital tracks the essential ingredients in the creation of jazz. You can discover just a few of them in the manuscripts we’ll have on display from our collections, from Jelly Roll Morton, James P. Johnson, George Gershwin, and newly arrived material by Fats Waller.
