The Jazz Show Episode September 8, 2014

Broadcast on 08-Sep-2014

9:00pm - 11:59pm

Alto saxophone master Julian "Cannonball" Adderley narrates "A History of Jazz".

This capsule history of Jazz with recorded examples is narrated by the erudite and lucid alto saxophone master Julian "Cannonball" Adderley. It was recorded in 1960 but is still entertaining and relevant as a historical document.It is Part 1 of our "back to school" idea that we do on The Jazz Show every September. Mr Adderley was well qualified to do a recording like this as he was not only a good speaker but was a former high school teacher before he became famous as a master saxophonist and bandleader. Sit back and enjoy this recording even if you heard it before as it is always worth revisiting. Next week will be another historic educational recording with Maestro Leonard Bernstein called "What Is Jazz".
