All Night Jazz: Mike Cornette - “Give Hunger the Blues and Jazz Festival”

Mike Cornette will host a studio performance with bassist Michael Ross and guitarist LaRue Nickelson as they prepare for the “Give Hunger the Blues and Jazz Festival” taking place this weekend in Sarasota. Mike will speak with event director Peter Anderson, as well. Plus our month-long centennial salute to jazz giants Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk continues.  Then later, just in time for “hump day,” we’ll hear another version of Duke Ellington’s “Caravan” on the Midnight Standard. The adventure begins tonight at nine on WUSF 89.7.
