All Night Jazz: July 8, 2017
Tonight on All Night Jazz, the “Other Nine to Five,” Mike Cornette will share Duke Ellington’s “Diminuendo and Crescendo in Blue,” which brought down the house at the Newport Jazz Festival on this day in jazz history in 1956. Plus more music from our focus artist of the week, legendary hard bop tenor saxophonist Hank Mobley. Then later, on the Midnight Standard, we’ll hear another version of Miles Davis’ “All Blues.” The adventure begins tonight at 9 on WUSF 89.7.
