The article discusses the auction of items related to jazz. Attics are emptying, it seems, as the families of jazz greats prepare to sell off heirlooms at Guernsey's in New York City on Feb. 20, in the biggest auction ever devoted to the genre. To raise money for jazz charities, museum curators will compete with online eBay bidders for some 430 lots, including these treasures: Benny Goodman's clarinet; Thelonious Monk's jacket; Lionel Hampton's vibraphone.
