Jazz Unlimited for February 8 will be “Jazz Musicians With Long Performance Careers-Part 2.” While many jazz fans think that jazz musicians die young, data shows that this is not the case. The month of February will be devoted to the music of over 200 major jazz artists who have performing careers of fifty years and longer. Some of the 78 musicians heard in various combinations on tonight’s show are Ernestine Anderson, Benny Goodman, Mary Lou Williams, Abdullah Ibrahim, Louis Armstrong, Earl Hines, Quincy Jones, Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Woody Herman, Ella Fitzgerald. Ralph Sutton, Ernie Wilkins and others.
The Slide Show contains my photographs of some of the musicians heard in this show.
The Archive of this show will be available until the morning of February 16, 2015/
