Jimmy Smith

He's played with everyone from Sonny Rollins and James Brown to Dinah Washington and Jimmy Smith. Even at 83, he is still very much involved in the world of jazz as an educator.  The man I am speaking of is Kenny Burrell and in this edition of Jazz Journeys, you'll get a chance to hear me speak with the legendary guitarist.

On this edition of Jazz Journeys, you'll hear excerpts from a recent interview I had the pleasure of doing with the premier organist in the world, Mr. Joey DeFrancesco.

There are a number of jazz organists around today who are carrying on the rich history of the Hammond B-3 that was established by the likes of Jimmy Smith, Groove Holmes and others.  One of the most versatile of the bunch is Larry Goldings.  In this edition of Jazz Journeys, you'll get to hear Larry talk about the instrument in his own words.

It's slogan is "The Finest In Jazz Since 1939."  The historic Blue Note record label celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2014. Grant Green, Jimmy Smith, John Coltrane, Dexter Gordon...the list goes on and on. A label with a rich history and so much tradition that has provided jazz lovers some of the most memorable recordings ever made.
