Jazz Unlimited for March 11, 2018 is “Music I Grew Up With.” I began following jazz in the late 1950’s and during this time started my collection, which is all-digital and contains over 53,000 songs. We will play only a small amount of the music that I heard during this time. It will include Miles Davis & John Coltrane, Johnny Griffin and the Big Soul Band, Grant Green, Donald Byrd & Pepper Adams, Lockjaw Davis & Johnny Griffin, Stanley Turrentine & Les McCann, Ray Bryant, Etta Jones, Groove Holmes & Gene Ammons, the Jazz Crusaders, Bobby Hutcherson, Ray Charles, Red Garland, Cannonball Adderley, Victor Feldman & Wes Montgomery, Eddie Harris and Horace Silver. This Sunday is a special one in that it is the only time you can contribute to St. Louis Public Radio on Jazz Unlimited. Vote for Jazz Unlimited with your contribution tonight!
The Slide Show contains my photographs of some of the musicians heard on this show.
The Archive of this show will be available until the morning of March 18, 2018
