Jazz Live From Birdland, The Half Note and Sweet Basil
Jazz Unlimited for January 5, 2014 will be “Live Jazz from Birdland, the Half Note and Sweet Basil.” Energy reflected back to performing artists from an up close and personal audience often brings out the best in them. We will feature live performances from Miles Davis, Bud Powell, Jim Hall, Clifford Brown, Lou Donaldson, Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, Nick Brignola, Abdullah Ibrahim, Count Basie with Sarah Vaughan, Lee Konitz, Bill Evans, Wes Montgomery with Wynton Kelly, Donald Harrison and Terence Blanchard, John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy with Booker Little, Paul Bley, Steve Lacy and the big bands of David Murray and Andrew Hill.
My photos of some of the artists heard on tonight's show can be found in the Slide Show.
This Archive of the show will be available until the morning of January 13, 2014
