On the Air: Jazz and Beer

Before beer became the beverage of televised college and professional sports in the U.S., it was most often linked with jazz.

After my post yesterday on the late Urbie Green and my inclusion of a Schaefer beer ad Green appeared in, Sid Gribetz sent along a few more jazzy beer ads. I added a bunch, and below are the 11 results of our email exchange...    Here'...

Urbie Green (1926-2018)

Urbie Green, one of jazz's smoothest and most polished trombonists who recorded more often than virtually any other post-war player, including Frank Rosolino, J.J.
