An erudite and elegant stylist, pianist and composer Aaron Diehl took up the enviable task of the 2018-2019 Library’s jazz scholars: to delve deeply into our rich archives and examine some of our treasures. His Blues and the Spanish Tinge recital tracks the essential ingredients in the creation of jazz. You can discover just a few of them in the manuscripts we have from our collections, from Jelly Roll Morton, James P. Johnson, George Gershwin, and Fats Waller.
