Please join me tonight on Jazz Unlimited from 9 pm to midnight on St. Louis Public Radio, 90.7 KWMU for “The Keys and String Hour + New Music.” the Keys and Strings Hour will present music with cellos as front-line solo instruments with Roger Kellaway, Red Mitchell, Dave Brubeck, Tal Farlow, Billy Strayhorn and Duke Ellington. New music for December will feature four items from the just released historically important Savory Collection with music from Count Basie, Herschel Evans and Coleman Hawkins. In addition, we will hear from Snarky Puppy’s Bill Laurence, our own Steve Davis, Terell Stafford, the Vail Jazz All-Stars, Erik Jacabson, Myra Melford, Ingrid Jensen and a Kurt Elling Holiday album.
