034 The Cool School of the 1950s – The Beginning of Modern Jazz in Australia – (2 CD Set) AJM 034 – CSO 690

In the USA in the early 1940s, a “modern” form of jazz was evolving, initially in the form of Rebop. This new jazz did not reach Australia until the later forties and eventually developed into “cool” or “modern” jazz. The many tracks on this double-CD illustrate the developing form of this style of jazz.
