Jazz Giants For September And October
Jazz Unlimited for September 23, 2018 will be “Jazz Giants For September and October.” Jazz Giants are musicians who influence the course of jazz or who are major influences on their instrument. We will be hearing jazz played by Art Pepper, Art Tatum, Lionel Hampton, Buddy Rich, Oscar Pettiford, Clifford Brown, Ray Brown, Horace Silver, Gerald Wilson, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie, Dave Holland, Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter, Arthur Blythe and our own Lester Bowie and Oliver Lake. This is our Fall Member Campaign show; please bring your credit cards and checkbooks.
The Slide Show shows my photographs of some of the musicians heard on this show.
The Archive of this show will be available until the morning of October 1, 2018.
