Jazz Unlimited for March 2, 2014 will be “Live Jazz from Other New York Venues, Part 1.” Jazz played live is a different animal from jazz recorded in the emotionally sterile confines of a studio. The energy and emotion reflected back from an audience to the performers brings about better performances. We continue our survey of New York venues with smaller clubs and Lincoln Center as well as presenting music from clubs that we did not have time for on earlier shows. We will feature duets between Dick Wellstood and Kenny Davern, Dick Hyman and Roger Kellaway and Joe Lovano and Hank Jones in the first hour. Other artists featured will be Duke Ellington Trio, the Thelonious Monk Big Band, the 1964 Miles Davis Quintet, the John Handy Quintet, the Dizzy Gillespie Quintet, the Jimmy Smith Trio, the Charles Mingus “Epitaph” Big Band, the Charles Tolliver Quartet, the McCoy Tyner Trio, the Lockjaw Davis/Johnny Griffin Quintet, the Grachan Moncur III Quartet, a Charles Mingus live Jam Session, the Hamiet Bluiett Baritone Saxophone Band and the Don Byron Quintet.
The Slide Show presents my photographs of some of the artists heard on this show.
The Archive for this show will be available until the morning of March 10, 2014.
