Fifty Years Later...and Still Magnificent: Great Jazz Recordings of 1964 (on the Next All This Jazz)

No doubt about it: 1964 is one of the all-time greatest years in pop music history. The Rolling Stones released their eponymous first album. Simon & Garfunkel likewise released their debut LP ("Wednesday Morning, 3 AM"). Dylan's "The Times They Are a-Changin'" came out. "Fiddler on the Roof" opened on Broadway. Oh, and this band called The Beatles visited America for the first time and changed the course of civilization.

Next Time on ATJ: We'll Hear Some Excellent Jazz Standards from the Great War Years

On the next edition of All This Jazz -- in the immediate wake of Veterans Day, and as communities around the globe continue to observe the First World War Centenary -- our second-hour theme will be Jazz Standards Dating Back to WWI.

Lots of terrific (and, in fact, timeless) American pop tunes were born during the years of the Great War -- i.e., the summer of 1914 through the fall of 1918 -- such as, to name a few, "Indiana," "Beale Street Blues," "Tiger Rag," and "St. Louis Blues."
