2021 09 In Transition September 05 Ronnie Mathews, Gerry Mulligan, James Williams…

Starting off today’s episode is African piano legend Randy Weston. A unique way of presenting his music has always been his hallmark. It also made him an influence on many other pianists. Also featured on the show is one of the greatest big band leaders ever, the great Count Basie. The recording I selected is from a recording he made for the great Roulette label. Although not in the same influence and importance as Blue Note or Decca to name a couple, Roulette did have a roster of greats such as Sarah Vaughan and Montreal trumpet great Maynard Ferguson as examples.
