Jazz Artists of History With Major Birthdays In February; Tribute To Donald Byrd
Some jazz greats have major birthdays in February. The February Jazz Unlimited show will include reed players John Handy, Buddy DeFranco, Harold Land and Dexter Gordon and many others. In addition we will have a tribute to jazz great Donald Byrd, who passed away February 4.
Check out my photos of some of the musicians heard on tonight's show.
Due to recording rights, the audio for this show has been removed. Audio is posted for two weeks after a show airs.
Here is a video from the film "A Song is Born" with Benny Goodman, Mel Powell and Lionel Hampton. See if you can spot any other jazz greats in the crowd.
