New York’s Arvada Center for the Arts presents B-Side Records: A Hidden History of Jazz through The ARC Ensemble. This one-of-a-kind, multimedia presentation traces the history of the world-renowned, independent jazz label, through interviews, archival footage, and haunting song. When it closed its doors after owner Adolph Chervin passed away in 1993, many jazz lovers at the time couldn’t even believe that jazz records were still printed.

With the help of long-time jazz-rock musicians, B-Side co-founder and the director Brian Gottschalk and his collaborative team have assembled songs and interviews from The New York Times, New York Magazine, NBC, Rolling Stone, Billboard, etc. to take the audience on a tour of jazz history through newly unreleased compositions by legendary composers such as Jim Doxas, Blaze Foley, Paul Simon, Frank Sinatra, Oscar Peterson, Dizzy Gillespie, Jelly Roll Morton, Miles Davis, Ray Charles, Claude Thornhill, and Bing Crosby.
