Continuing a Tradition
The first Hampton Jazz Festival concert was held in 1968. The goal was to celebrate the jazz genre as well as the artists who were making contributions to its growth. The inaugural event featured Count Basie, Gary Burton and Dizzy Gillespie as well as Ramsey Lewis, the Herbie Mann Quintet and the Thelonious Monk Quartet. The longevity of the festival has turned the event into an annual reunion for loyal fans, the community and the artists who enjoy performing at this particular revelry. Jazz music holds a special place in American history particularly for the African-American community. This genre is said to have emerged from ragtime, marches and the blues, so the festival's goal is to maintain the history while passing tradition and an appreciation onto the younger generations, too.
