Another jazz moment from the 1965 WBAI marathon
Here is another snippet from our first marathon. We served New York's artistic community well, and it responded overwhelmingly. These musicians came straight to our little studio from a club date—it was six o'clock in the morning and pianist Walter Bishop, Jr. had just finished playing a set for us. I will post some of that here, too. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy Mr. Jordan and his group—their music offered WBAI listeners a far more satisfying and relevant "premium" than all the gloom and doom DVDs and phony cancer cures that are on the fund-raising menu these days.
