Norman Granz always loved jam sessions. A talented concert promoter who developed into a major force in the jazz world, Granz most enjoyed freewheeling sessions in which trumpeters and saxophonists battled each other. In 1944 he organized a concert billed as “Jazz At The Philharmonic,” a fund-raiser in Los Angeles. With such notables as tenor saxophonist Illinois Jacquet, pianist Nat King Cole, and guitarist Les Paul in the lineup, the music (which was recorded) was a success. By 1946 Granz was organizing extensive annual tours featuring greats from the swing and bop worlds playing medium-tempo blues, standards and ballad medleys. And thinking ahead to the world of LPs (which had not yet been invented), Granz recorded many of the concerts in hopes of releasing them someday.
