New Music Looks Back At Three Giants Of Jazz
Sunday, July 19
This week on Straight No Chaser we open with a brand new, just-unwrapped recording from tenor saxophonist Harry Allen. Allen has put out multiple recordings in 2015: a collaboration with the Swedish Jan Lundgren Quartet, and a tribute to George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Duke Ellington.
We'll continue with selections from jazz greats Jimmy Smith and Ahmad Jamal. Also hear Stan Getz as he performs with trombonist J.J. Johnson and with pianist Bill Evans.
