Pay tribute to one of the great innovators and bandleaders in jazz music. A talented drummer and an early master of the vibraphone, Lionel Hampton also became a pioneer of racial progress when he joined one of the first integrated jazz bands—the world famous Benny Goodman Quartet. You will hear some of his best-known tunes, including “Flying Home,” “One O’clock Jump,” and “Stompin’ at the Savoy.”
