All That Jazz Oral History Project

"This project shows the Strip in the heyday of entertainment from a different angle, from the point of view of band members. What was it like to play behind Sammy Davis, Jr., or Bobby Darrin? Why did this type of music end? Did the musician’s union make the right decision by striking? Las Vegas history is multi-layered and this group permits a look into the back door of stage."
