Celebrating November Birthdays (on All This Jazz)
There are lots and lots of jazz greats with November b'days.
For example, and in no particular order: Charlie Mariano. George Cables. Teddy Wilson. Paul Desmond. Etta Jones. Gigi Gryce. Coleman Hawkins. Kevin Eubanks. Don Byron. Eddie Condon. June Chistry (see LP cover herewith, btw). Hampton Hawes. Roswell Rudd. Don Cherry. Mose Allison. Sam Jones. Chris Connor. Ellis Marsalis. Roger Kellaway. Phil Woods. Kurt Elling. Serge Chaloff. Al Cohn. Maria Schneider. Lyle Mays. Scott Joplin.
Ergo, "Jazz Greats with November Birthdays" will be our second-hour theme on the next edition of All This Jazz, which gets underway at 10pm Central on Public Radio 89.5-1 this coming Saturday night (the 10th).
We'll hear from several of the outstanding jazz performers listed above --- and others --- so please join us, if you're willing and able. You'll be glad you did.
