Keys And Strings Hour (Dizzy Gillespie Tunes) + New Music
Jazz Unlimited for September 24, 2017 will be “The Keys and Strings Hour (Dizzy Gillespie Tunes) + New Music.” The quieter side of jazz in the first hour will feature tunes by Dizzy Gillespie played by pianists Lynne Ariale, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Phineas Newborn, Jr., Keith Jarrett, Mary Lou Williams, Oscar Peterson, Tommy Flanagan and Kenny Barron. The noisier side of jazz will be heard in the second and third hours with new music played by Harold Mabern, the Debbie Poryes Trio, Emi Meyer, the group Hudson, a Martian Solal/Dave Liebman duet, Steve Lacy and Roswell Rudd playing a Monk tune, a tribute to Miles Davis, pianist Florian Hoeffner, Ran Blake, Tyshawn Sorey, Gerald Beckett and the big bands of Alan Ferber and Chuck Owen.

The Archive of this show will be available until the morning of October 2, 2017.
