Put Down The Horn: Jazz's Unlikely Singers

playsandsings

On this episode of Afterglow, I highlight the jazz musicians who made their living playing horn, piano, or drums, but who could also sing when the occasion called for it. It's a look at jazz's part-time, unlikely singers, including Chet Baker, Buddy Rich, Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Peterson, Benny Goodman, Roy Eldridge, Kenny Burrell, Tex Beneke, Woody Herman, and Clark Terry.
