Jazz Giants Born In November And December
Jazz Unlimited for Sunday, December 30, 2018 will be “Jazz Giants Born in November and December.” Jazz Giants are individuals whose sound and approach are instantly identifiable. Their work has influenced those who came after them. This show will highlight music from bandleaders Fletcher Henderson, Benny Moten and Toshiko Akiyoshi; pianists Willie “The Lion” Smith, Teddy Wilson, Dave Brubeck, Wynton Kelly, Roger Kellaway, Ray Bryant, Hampton Hawes, and John Hicks; trumpeters Clark Terry, Bunny Berigan and Woody Shaw; saxophonists Serge Chaloff, Phil Woods, Joe Lovano; trombonists Steve Turre and Jimmy Knepper; organist Jimmy Smith, drummer Tony Williams and vocalists Anita O’Day, Sheila Jordan and Joe Williams.
