Some jazz greats have major birthdays in February. The February Jazz Unlimited show will include reed players John Handy, Buddy DeFranco, Harold Land and Dexter Gordon and many others. In addition we will have a tribute to jazz great Donald Byrd, who passed away February 4.
Check out my photos of some of the musicians heard on tonight's show.
The Jazz Unlimited show for January 6 will begin a series on listening to musicians who were born or nurtured in specific urban centers. This is the first of two parts on Detroit and its environs. On tonight's show the featured musicians include guitarist Kenny Burrell.
