The Sunday, March 30 Jazz Unlimited show is “Jazz Giants for March and April.”  These musicians are the ones who have changed the way we listen to jazz.  They have set the styles.  These musicians include Bix Beiderbecke, Harry Carney, Lionel Hampton, Nat “King” Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Gerry Mulligan, Carmen McRae, Eddie Lockjaw Davis, Larry Coryell, Thad Jones, Charles Mingus, Pee Wee Russell, Johnny Griffin, Red Norvo, Sarah Vaughan, Randy Weston, Billie Holiday, Jim Hall, George Adams, Paul Chambers, George Coleman, Herbie Hancock, Charles Lloyd, Lennie Tristano, Charles Tolliver, Joe Henderson, Michael Brecker and Ornette Coleman.

The Slide Show has photographs of some of the artists heard on this show.

Here is avideo of Pee Russell (cl) with Jimmy McPartland (cnt) Art Hodes (p) playing what I think is  "I Want A Little Girl" in 1968, one year before his death.
