The Baltimore segment pays homage to one of the nation’s longest running community-sponsored Jazz concert series, “The Left Bank Jazz Society,” which presented A-list Jazz artists from the Left Bank’s inception in 1964, through the turn of the century. Excursions will feature excerpts from recordings made from these historic concert presentations.
