 10/23/2011 “Out There a Minute” Jazz Program

As it happens, every song title (save one) on this week’s “Out There a Minute” jazz program begins with the word “You”. The artists and performers, however, are a more diverse bunch, mostly drawn from WXDU’s extensive jazz library. The program will feature music and performances by Louis Armstrong; Pearl Bailey; Elvis Costello and Marian MacPartland; Von Freeman and Frank Catalano; Essence All Stars; Benny Green; Bunky Green; Marty Grosz; Leroy Holmes; Harry James; Rahassan Roland Kirk; Frank Lowe; Buddy Morrow; Ken Nordine; The Bad Plus; Sex Mob; Pharoah Sanders; John Scofield and Aaron Neville; Jimmy Smith; Sun Ra; Fats Waller; Billy Ward & The Dominoes; Dick Wellstood; and John Zorn. Phil Wilson will have the sign-off song--which does not begin with “You”.

Program time is Sunday, 10 a.m. - noon. I hope you will tune in, and I hope you will hear something that interests you.
