On the Next All This Jazz: The Music of Miles Davis http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/next-all-jazz-music-miles-davis <p>Miles Davis would have turned 88 on Memorial Day (Monday the 26th); he died at 65 in the early 1990s. His influence on this music --- on <em>these musics</em> --- that we label "jazz" is obvious and enormous and arguably, in this age of omnipresent, genre-blurring crossover projects and increasingly sophisticated recording techniques and technologies, greater than ever before. (And have you heard, by the way, that Don Cheadle is planning to direct and star in a film about Miles?

Much like Quincy Jones, who turned 81 in March, Mancini had a legendary and stylistically diverse tenure in American music, from hip jazz and chart-topping pop to crossover projects and big-band charts and configurations extraordinaire, with lots of award-winning TV and film scoring along the way.

(Sometimes it rains. Or a nightclub beckons.)<br /> Thu, 08 May 2014 22:16:36 +0000 Scott Gregory 59261 at http://publicradiotulsa.org On the Next All This Jazz, We've Got Can't-Miss Live Recordings in Various Styles On the Next All This Jazz, Duke Ellington's Tunes (in Honor of His Recent Birthday) http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/next-all-jazz-duke-ellingtons-tunes-honor-his-recent-birthday <p>Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington's birthday arrived earlier this week --- he was born April 29th, 1899, in Washington, DC; he died in 1974.<br /> Thu, 01 May 2014 22:42:52 +0000 Scott Gregory 58860 at http://publicradiotulsa.org On the Next All This Jazz, Duke Ellington's Tunes (in Honor of His Recent Birthday)
