The Lost Jazz World of Terre Haute
April 07, 2022
This week we'll celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month by exploring the lost jazz world of Terre Haute. During the 1920s and ’30s, Terre Haute, Indiana was home to a thriving jazz scene, producing outstanding local bandleaders and attracting national talent - including Duke Ellington, who performed at Terre Haute’s Trianon club in December of 1939.
