Jazz Night In America with Christian McBride
Jazz Night In America with Christian McBride Tue, Mar 26th from 9:00PM - 10:00PM
Allison Miller
What would you say if I told you that drums can sing? The best jazz drummers have always understood this as fact. Allison Miller has even made it a core part of her artistic mission — as drummer, a composer and a bandleader. Jazz Night in America recently caught up with Miller, who skillfully demonstrates the concept of “melodic drumming” — using her drums and cymbals, a Duke Ellington tune, and a new piece of technology. We also dropped in at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola for portions of an engaging set by Boom Tic Boom.

Melba Liston
Melba Liston (1926-1999) made her mark as one of the few women to succeed as a jazz instrumentalist, composer, and arranger. A trombonist in the '40s, '50s and '60s, she played in big bands and led her own group in the '70s and '80s. As an accomplished arranger, she brought musical life to the songs of artists as diverse as Billie Holiday, Gloria Lynne, Art Blakey, Milt Jackson, and even Marvin Gaye. And her musical collaboration with pianist Randy Weston for more than thirty years produced such critically acclaimed albums as The Spirits of Our Ancestors and Volcano Blues.
