Representing a bridge between the old world and new world of jazz, we begin the 719th Episode of Neon Jazz with veteran musician, educator and broadcaster Bill Kirchner joined by his Nonet off his 2014 CD Lifeline. We also visit some veteran players with some fresh new sounds like John DePaola, Benoit Delbecq and Gabriel Evan. We are happy to introduce you to the young Kentucky Hammond B-3 cat Kendall Carter. We also say good-bye to a few musicians we lost recently. First, Kansas City drummer Kevin Frazee and the legendary George Wein. Enjoy the show, my friends.
