Alyn Shipton presents listeners' requests, including music from Joe Harriott, Trevor Watts, Ken Colyer, Chet Baker, Donald Lambert and Jelly Roll Morton.
Plenty of contrast in today's selection of listeners' requests presented by Alyn Shipton. A classic track by saxophonist Joe Harriott contrasts with the latest CD from altoist Trevor Watts. The traditional jazz trumpet of Ken Colyer sits alongside the more mainstream sound of Chet Baker. When it comes to pianists, the stride-meets-classical-music of Harlem player Donald Lambert is startlingly different from the self-proclaimed inventor of jazz Jelly Roll Morton.
