Coleman Hawkins (Instead) on Big Band Saturday Night

Mar 16, 2013

Our planned program featuring Ray Anthony will be delayed until March 23rd.

Meanwhile, this weekend, I will bring you the story and the music of Coleman Hawkins. He came to prominence as a member of Fletcher Henderson's big band. He was said to mix the style of Louis Armstrong with his own robust tone that set a new bench mark for all tenor sax players. Join us for Big Band Saturday Night at 8 o’clock on Public Radio 89.5-1. And a Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all!
