Milt Hinton on the Road - exhibition in the Academic Commons

 Milton J. Hinton (1910-2000) enjoyed a long and influential career as a bass player.  His professional musical activities can be divided into three general phases: his time on the road, primarily with Cab Calloway and Louis Armstrong (up to 1954), his time as a studio musician in New York City (mid-1950s through 1970s), and his time after the studios, where he combined touring, festival appearances, and work as an educator (1970s through 2000).

This exhibit, which focuses on Hinton’s early life and time on the road through the mid-1950s, is on display in the Academic Commons through November 6th.
