The Jazz Show Episode August 27, 2007

Broadcast on 27-Aug-2007

9:00pm - 11:59pm

This historic meeting of three giants of the music is relaxed and unpretentious but so profound. The "President", Lester Young in great post-war form with his favourite(aside from Count Basie) pianist, Nat "King" Cole. Cole, of course is better known as a singer but was one of the foremost influential pianists of his day and he does double duty here as there is no string bass. Buddy Rich on drums can play so musically and adapt to any situation and he compliments both Young and Cole with his drive and taste> Great music by a great trio.
