More Limited Editions From Mosaic

Sunday, August 9

Tonight we take a listen to more significant reissues from Mosaic Records' Limited Edition series. We will hear the Thad Jones/Mel Lewis Orchestra, Woody Shaw, Johnny Hodges, J.J. Johnson and Gerry Mulligan and the Concert Jazz Band. 

Mulligan formed the Concert Jazz Band in 1960 as his own experiment with the personnel of a traditional big band. Several legendary musicians passed through the band over its short lifespan including Thad Jones, Doc Severinsen, and Zoot Sims. 

Bill Pearce is the host and producer of KMUW’s Straight No Chaser. The music program features mostly instrumental jazz, from early music to recent recordings and airs every Sunday at 9 p.m.
