The Sleep Cycle

Sep 9, 2013

All of us spend a significant portion of our lives sleeping.  When we are asleep, we dream, we have rapid eye movements, some of us talk, some of us walk and at one time or other we all have nightmares.  There are a surprising number of tunes having to do with what goes on when we sleep.   We feature music by Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Ben Webster, Irene Reid, Johnny Hodges, Bertha, Roger Kellaway, Count Basie, Ornette Coleman, Kurt Elling, Gary Burton, Horace Silver, Irene Reid, Meredith D'Ambrosio, the Modern Jazz Quartet, Charles Mingus, Gerald Clayton, Marilyn Crispell, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Jim Hall, Pat Metheny, Anat Cohen, the Birdland Dream Band, Sun Ra, Lynne Arriale and St. Louis's own David Parker, Dan Rubright and Steve Schenkel.

There are no photos or videos this week.
