Boston Jazz History Blog:

The First Boston Globe Jazz Festival, 1966

 

Boston jazz historian Richard Vacca’s Boston Jazz Chronicles is an amazing and valuable resource.  We encourage jazz musicians and fans to check it out.

In addition, Vacca maintains a beautifully researched blog with regular features about noted people & places that helped shape the Boston-area jazz scene.  The current entry is about the first Boston Globe Jazz Festival in January 1966 at what became the Hynes Convention Center, produced by George Wein.  Read about it here.
