The end of World War II also signified the end of the Swing Era, a period when jazz and popular music were basically synonymous. In the years that followed, a group of pioneering African-American musicians rebelled against the prevailing style and developed the next phase in jazz evolution — bebop. Initially cultivated in the after-hours jam sessions of Harlem, this new music found a home in the post-war years in the small nightclubs of 52nd Street in Manhattan. Seth and Sean will tell the stories and perform the music of such bebop pioneers as Charlie “Bird” Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk and more.
