A Great Day in Harlem (Part 1) - ep.82 The Vinyl Thread

Welcome to The Vinyl Thread with Natalie and Alban Low. We find ourselves outside 17 East 126th Street between Fifth and Madison Avenue in New York. It's August 12th, 1958 and 57 Jazz musicians gather together to have their portrait taken by photographer Art Kane. The image will be known as A Great Day in Harlem, and this week we track down vinyl featuring some of those musicians . Join us for 20 minutes of vinyl and shellac, we spin flea market finds and auction lots into a themed selection for you to enjoy.
