The Career Of Horace Parlan

Feb 17, 2018

Jazz Unlimited for Sunday, February 18, 2018 will be “The Career of Horace Parlan.”  Pianist Horace Parlan was born in Pittsburgh in 1931. After working in New York as an in-demand musician, he became a permanent resident of Denmark in 1973.  He is best known for his work with Charles Mingus, Archie Shepp and Stanley Turrentine.  In addition, he will be heard with “Lockjaw” Davis & Johnny Griffin, Clark Terry & Ernie Wilkins, Dexter Gordon, “Rahsaan” Roland Kirk, Chris Woods, Tubby Hayes and his own groups.

The Slide Show contains my photographs of some of the musicians heard on this show.

The Archive of this show will be available until the morning of February 26, 2018.
