Birthday tribute to JMac

May 23rd, 2010

This show opens with a tribute to Hartford's favorite jazz son JMac. Jackie McLean would have been 79 years old this past week. Besides being a giant in the jazz world (mentored by Charlie Parker, played with Mingus, Miles, Sonny Rollins and more) Jackie was the founder of the Artists Collective in Hartford's north end and headed the Jazz department at U of H's Hartt school of music. We also pay our respects to Hank Jones, who passed away one week ago. The show then shifts to some modern players such as guitarist Adam Rogers, pianist Jean-Michel Pilc and tenor player Noah Preminger.
