The Jazz Show Episode September 13, 2010

Broadcast on 13-Sep-2010

9:00pm - 12:00am

This is from a recording done in 1960 for Riverside Records and it is a capsule history of Jazz with recorded examples and snippets of recordings available to Riverside at the time. The narrator is one of the masters of the alto saxophone and great bandleader Julian "Cannnonball" Adderley. It is an enjoyable short history of this great American art form and is Part 1 of a two part Jazz Feature to signal the beginning of a new school year. It is still a very useful disc despite it's date (1960)'s too bad that Adderley was not called into the studio every five years or so to update this recording but this is all we have. Educational and entertaining.
