Strange Enchantment: Jazz For Halloween

"Strange Enchantment" is a program of Halloween-related jazz, including music from Duke Ellington ("Stalking Monster"), Bill Evans ("Witchcraft"), Kay Starr ("The Headless Horseman"), Rahsaan Roland Kirk ("Haunted Feelings")and a very young Gil Evans with Skinny Ennis ("Strange Enchantment") as well as tracks from Andrew Hill, Miles Davis, and Lenny Bruce's Dracula-as-roadweary-musician monologue. You'll also hear the true story of the New Orleans Axeman, who wreaked bloody mayhem in New Orleans in 1918-19 and who promised to spare anyone who happened to be playing jazz. You can read more about the New Orleans Axeman here.
