We wrote up the First Annual Boston Jazz Festival that happened in Fenway Park on this weekend in 1959. This was news to us at Dirty Old Boston. Now along comes new news (redundancy necessary) from TroyStreet.com of a predecessor, the North Shore Jazz Festival, held at the Manning Bowl in Lynn on this very weekend in 1957. Although some of the same names from 1959 were in the lineup, other notables we would have loved to have seen included Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington, George Shearing, and, representing the Left Coast, Gerry Mulligan. We will let our friends at Troy Street tell you the story. http://troystreet.com/tspots/2013/08/23/august-23-1957-at-the-north-shore-jazz-festival/. Thanks guys! Happy weekending.

                  George Shearing made Latin rhythms popular without selling out.
