Playing tracks by
Roland Kirk, Alvin Queen, 4-Sight, Jorge Sylvester, Bennie Wallace and more.
Hope you enjoyed last week’s BN blowout. This week we have more Horace Silver, as a sideman with Lou Donaldson, Sonny Stitt’s big band, and the rarely heard Howard McGhee (HG, Vol 2) on BN, along with a salute to Charles Lloyd on his receipt of an NEA Jazz Masters Award this year. We’ve also got grease from Alvin Queen, the criminally under-recorded altoist Jorge Sylvester, Bennie Wallace, & Art Farmer/Jim Hall; a compare & contrast between Herbie Nichols & Archie Shepp; Billie Holiday; another free association quiz for you serious jazzers (including an exquisite track from trumpeter Avishai Cohen); and finish off with a Disney classic rendered by vocalist Ann Burton. You keep the music strong, and I thank you for your support!
