Join the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra (SJMO) Ensemble for an evening dedicated to the legacy of Norman Granz at the National Museum of American History!

Norman Granz, jazz impresario, founder of Verve Records and Jazz at the Philharmonic, was the primary source for the recording and dissemination of jazz from the 1940s-1980s.

Throughout his unparalleled career, Granz produced recordings across a broad spectrum of artists including Lester Young, Miles Davis, Benny Carter, Billy Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, and Ella Fitzgerald. In 1944, he produced the first in his series of “Jazz at the Philharmonic” concerts in Los Angeles. The Norman Granz legacy is etched in all corners of the world as his unyielding efforts have elevated the status of jazz and put Granz in a class all his own. Join us to hear the SJMO perform the music of jazz’s greatest artists as presented by Norman Granz.
