On the Sunday, December 23 edition of Jazz Unlimited, we celebrate the return of the sunlight and some of the celebrations around the Winter Solstice. Specifically, the music will reflect the Hanukkah, Christmas and Kwanza traditions. The artists on the show include Pieces of Eight with Debby Lennon, Herbie Mann, Jess Stacy, Don Byron, the Modern Jazz Quartet, Dexter Gordon, Randy Weston, The Jim McNeely Tentette, Count Basie, John Coltrane with Eric Dolphy, Duke Ellington, The Kronos Quartet. A special feature is the reading of the Clement Moore poem "The Night Before Christmas" by Louis Armstrong. See the playlist and listen here.
Due to music copyright restrictions, the music from this show is no longer available. Music is posted for two weeks after a show airs.
