The Jazz Show Episode March 3, 2014

Broadcast on 03-Mar-2014

9:00pm - 11:59pm

The great producer Norman Granz was responsible for bringing the jam session which he felt was the core of Jazz music, to the stage. He also recorded many studio produced jams with some of the greatest musicians in the world. Charlie Parker, Oscar Peterson, Illinois Jacquet, Count Basie, Buddy Rich and literally hundreds of others. Many of these recordings are now considered classic and essential in anyone's record collection. We will play a variety of them tonight on our special Fun Drive Show.
