Jazz Unlimited for January 12, 2014 will present “Live Jazz from the Five-Spot, Village Gate and Café Bohemia.” Energy reflected back to performing artists from an up close and personal audience often brings out the best performances. We will feature live performances from Donald Byrd & Pepper Adams, Les McCann, Stanley Turrentine, Mongo Santamaria, Kenny Dorham, Coleman Hawkins, Sir Roland Hanna, Kenny Burrell, Herbie Mann, Horace Silver, Charles Mingus, Miles Davis.
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 Akiy
