Mellow vibes: Lem Winchester's Moodsville LP.

On this edition of Night Lights it’s “Moodsville 2,” a followup to the Moodsville 1 program about the Prestige Records early-1960s series that was a sort of “jazz-ballads-for-thinking-lovers” concept. This show features albums from vibraphonist Lem Winchester, a policeman-turned-musician who died in a tragic gun accident shortly after recording his Moodsville album; organist/pianist Shirley Scott, trumpeter Clark Terry, and tenor saxophonist Lucky Thompson.
