All Night Jazz: July 26, 2017

King Pleasure

Tonight on All Night Jazz, the “Other Nine to Five,” Mike Cornette will share classic vocalese from the singer known as King Pleasure recorded on this day in jazz history. Plus, we’ll hear more from our focus artist of the week, alto saxophonist Johnny Hodges. 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 9 on WUSF 89.7.
