Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology
|Smithsonian Folkways Recordings|
From early ragtime to international modernism, Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology (a 2011 update of the milestone 1973 Smithsonian Collection of Classic Jazz) lets you enjoy this uniquely American musical genre through its legendary innovators, including Armstrong, Ellington, Basie, Gillespie, Fitzgerald, and Marsalis. Box Set; 6 CDs with 111 tracks; soft cover companion book, 200 pages. 11.25" x 6.56"
In addition to a number of jazz recordings the National Museum of American History’s Hall of Musical Instruments contains priceless classical instruments from the legacy collection of the National Museum of American History. Some have remained highly prized over the past 300 years. Others once enjoyed great popularity, but subsequently fell into disuse. Samples of instruments and music relating to the history, performance styles, and techniques of European and American music and the development of musical instruments are presented.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
