Roots & Branches 40: Jazz From Armstrong Park


This gem of a modern jazz radio program hour was rescued from
cassette oblivion through the miracle of digital transfer and edited at the 420 Café in Amsterdam for exclusive presentation here. I’m filling in for Mr. Jazz, Mike Gourrier, on his Monday afternoon Jazz From The Park show in November 1996 and playing music by Roland Kirk & Jack McDuff, Lee Morgan with Jackie McLean, Yusef Lateef & His Men, Eddie Jefferson with the James Moody Orchestra, Ben Webster, the Count Basie Orchestra, Roy Haynes with Roland Kirk, and Charlie Parker with the fabulous Machito Orchestra.
