Wat je gaat doen

This tour traces the long and wild history of jazz in Los Angeles. From Jelly Roll Morton to La-La Land, the City of Angels has housed many of the world's most-recognized jazz artists, including Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton, Eric Dolphy, Charlie Parker, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald and hundreds more. Under the veneer of redevelopment and new coats of paint, the nightspots and haunts of jazz's past can still be found if you know where to look. On this tour, we'll see the theater where Dexter Gordon workshopped his Blue Note debut and the tiny brick-lined coffeehouse where Ornette Coleman honed his craft before heading east. We'll see Capitol Records Tower, the house that Nat King Cole built, looming large over an array of notable jazz stars embedded in the city's sidewalk. While many significant sites no longer exist, the history remains, and vibrates when accompanied by an extensive slideshow and authentic playlist!

Hi. I'm Sean, a member of the Atlas Obscura community. I've been consumed by a love of jazz since I was a teenager catching sets by legends like Ray Brown and Elvin Jones. I was a student of Billy Higgins and Gerald Wilson while at UCLA and have traveled the world covering jazz festivals for publications such as DownBeat magazine, Playboy magazine and the Los Angeles Times. In 2014, my photographic history of Los Angeles's Central Avenue jazz scene was published by Images of America press, culled from interviews with musicians who jammed with Charlie Parker and sat at the feet of famous LA residents Art Tatum and Jelly Roll Morton. For several years I was also the jazz correspondent for the KPCC public radio's "Off-Ramp" program talking with the likes of Big Jay McNeely and Dizzy Gillespie's presidential campaign manager, Ramona Crowell.

Meer tips

Hollywood is not always as glamorous as the movies will have you believe. It can be a dangerous and occasionally hostile environment. I recommend not wearing anything that might attract unwanted attention and refraining from giving anyone on the street anything.
