The Jazz Show Episode March 24, 2008

Broadcast on 24-Mar-2008

9:00pm - 11:59pm

Bennie Green was as important as J.J. Johnson in the development of Modern Jazz Trombone but sad to say he died in 1977 in obscurity. We bring Bennie to life again with a working band comprising Eddy Williams on tenor saxophone, a schoolmate of Bennie's from Chicago, the legendary Sonny Clark on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and the unheralded Jerry Segal on drums. Bennie's approach to Jazz was swinging, melodic and blues based and it's all there tonight. Have a good time.
