Just Jazz with Michael Burman
Just Jazz with Michael Burman Sat, Jan 28th from 9:00PM - 10:00PM
75 Years Ago
This episode of Just Jazz winds the calendar back 75 years.

Tune in to hear a very, very generous baker's dozen performances from 1948 by some of the established masters such as Duke Ellington, Coleman Hawkins, and Lester Young, and some of the up-and-coming (as they were then) artists such as Kenny Clarke, Charlie Parker, Milt Jackson, and Miles Davis. Vocalists include Billie Holiday, Nat Cole, and Ella Fitzgerald, as well as a couple of duos--one very hip, the other probably quite surprising.

Lil Greenwood
We’re paying tribute to a very dynamic, soulful and often passed over R&B female vocalist: Lil Greenwood. Today, Lil Greenwood is best remembered as a vocalist for Duke Ellington during the late '50s and early '60s, but it's her R&B recordings from 1950-1954 that are the real standouts. She recorded for the Modern, Specialty and Federal labels and often had vocal groups like The Four Jacks and The Lamplighters backing her up. Hear Lil's story and some of her greatest records.
