Contents
How we got there. A phrase with six tones-apart, yet integral ; Ellington's long road to Newport: apparitions within the music ; Duke's instrument: the '56 band ; The Tiffany label: Columbia Records ; George Avakian: from hot collecting to live recording ; Outdoor live recording: Columbia goes to Newport ; From the masses to the classes: Newport and Elaine Lorillard ; The most unlikely place: Newport to '56 -- Newport '56. Newport '56: a gathering primed to move ; The Saturday night: converging on the decisive moment ; A leading voice supported by many parts: Paul Gonsalves ; The rhythmic groove of the century: the Gonsalves solo ; Elaine Anderson: the gal who launched seven thousand cheers ; Not just patterns in the air: an audience performs -- Where it all went. As though you were there: the LP ; The Columbia formula: from niche to mainstream ; Sleeping under a fur coat: no longer the rich Mrs. Anderson ; The brotherhood of the jam: on the road with Paul and Duke ; Someone else's freedom: the VOA broadcast ; Festival junction: from Newport to Yasgur's farm
