From one of the finest drummers in the jazz world, we begin the 694th Episode of Neon Jazz with Jeff Hamilton and a song off his latest album. We also profile a host of musicians releasing some quality new music including Bobby Wiens, Chico Pinheiro, David Gilmore and Charles McPherson. We say goodbye to actor and banjo player who dabbled in the jazz arts, George Segal. We wrap up this episode with the big sound of The Vanguard Jazz Orchestra. Enjoy the jazz.
