This Sunday I'll present part 2 of our tribute to the great jazz pianists. We'll hear well-known classics like "Dat Dere", "Sister Sadie", "Round Midnight" and others played by bands lead by Jimmy Heath, Gil Evans, The City Rhythm Orchestra and more.
Join me for the second of two parts airing this Sunday from 7 to 8 pm.
