The Past Recaptured: 2009 Reissues

A sampling of some favorite reissues from the past year, including Stan Getz, Denny Zeitlin, Freddie Hubbard, Jackie McLean, and Tony Williams.

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:
