Jackie McLean

This week on Night Lights I’ll highlight some of my favorite reissues and historical releases from the past year. We’ll hear music from:

  • Pianist Denny Zeitlin‘s mid-1960s Columbia recordings
  • Saxophonist Jackie McLean‘s One Step Beyond (featuring Jackie’s smoldering, adventurous early-1960s group with trombonist Grachan Moncur and vibraphonist Bobby Hutcherson)
  • Stan Getz playing with an organ trio
  • A live date with lost-legend trumpeter Dupree Bolton
  • An until-now unearthed 1969 concert from Freddie Hubbard‘s European tour quartet…

and more.

• Watch Curtis Amy and Dupree Bolton perform “Katanga” on Frankly Jazz:
