Jazz Unlimited for October 7, 2018 will be “Remembering Randy Weston.”  Pianist Randy Weston, famous for blending African rhythms and sensibility in his work died on September 1 at the age of 92.  We will remember him with his performances as a leader, with his sideman work and with his compositions.  Weston himself, Eric Dolphy, Booker Ervin, Abbey Lincoln, Stanley Turrentine, Cannonball Adderley, George Shearing, Kenny Burrell, Horace Parlan, Roy Brooks and Charles Mingus will perform music on this show.

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