Our Distinguished Visitors

Reference Specialist Larry Appelbaum has helped welcome a diverse array of musical luminaries to the Music Division.  Here are just a few.

Herbie Hancock

Dave Brubeck

Dave Brubeck’s 2003 performance in the Library’s Coolidge Auditorium can be heard here. Larry recently interviewed Mr. Brubeck and his wife and lyricist Iola Brubeck.   You can view the webcasts here.

Jazz vocalist Jackie Ryan

San Francisco-based jazz singer Jackie Ryan made a rare Washington D.C. appearance and stopped by the Library’s Music Division to look at scores from the Ella Fitzgerald Collection, as well as other jazz treasures. She was transfixed by the Mulligan Exhibit case, where we snapped this candid shot.

    Hi, Pat—This is just the kind of thing I love showing to tourists when I give a tour at the Jefferson…or if we can ever get going with our tour of Perf Arts at the LC! Thanks so much!—Rebecca
