Another Set of Jazz Icons DVDs On the Way

The Jazz Icons series has been earning well-deserved raves from jazz fans around the world for its two rounds of live concert releases on DVD, featuring compelling and historical performances from the likes of Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane, Charles Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious get the picture. (And the sound!) A third wave of titles has been announced-we'll be seeing the following come September:

Sonny Rollins- Live In '65 & '68

Rahsaan Roland Kirk- Live In '64 & '67

Lionel Hampton- Live In '58

Nina Simone- Live In '65 & '68

Bill Evans- Live In '64-'75

Cannonball Adderley- Live In '63

...with one title still TBD.

Tip of the hat to kh1958 at the Organissimo jazz discussion forum (Detroit Free Press arts writer and fellow Bloomingtonian Mark Stryker is particularly excited about the Rollins release).
