    Here are three among many:

    1. The riotous first performance of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring on May 29, 1913.
    2. The first rehearsal of Kenton's Innovations in Modern Music Orchestra, Jan. 1950.
    3. Any club date by the Max Roach/Clifford Brown quintet between 1953 and 1955.

    53rd Street in NYC ("Swing Alley") in the 40s and 50s to see people like Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, and Miles Davis blowing live. Plus I could get buzzed for about $3.

    I would also have loved to see Pagannini and Heifetz play violin.

    Styxx, what's your answer?
