“Jazz was finding itself in a changed world by the mid-1950s – though not all the changes disadvantaged it. The invention of the long-playing record had allowed the art of extended improvisation, as well as the freedom of the jam session, to at last be represented on disc. Moreover, the enthusiasm of postwar college students was providing a young audience for hip new bands led by Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck, Chet Baker, Gerry Mulligan and others.”
