All Night Jazz: July 6, 2017

Duke Ellington

Tonight on All Night Jazz, the “Other Nine to Five,” Mike Cornette will feature selections from the monumental meeting of the Duke Ellington and Count Basie big bands, recorded on this day in jazz history. Plus more music from our focus artist of the week, legendary hard bop tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley. Then later, at midnight, it’s our 12 O’clock-tail: another version of Billy Strayhorn’s classic composition “Lush Life.” The adventure begins tonight at 9 on WUSF 89.7.
