From the talented collective Sammy Miller and the Congregation out of Los Angeles, California, we start a new hour of jazz with episode 594. Over the hour, we hear from some exceedingly cool cats like Duke Ellington, Hugh Masekala, Fess Williams and Harry James. A look into the music and words of the book Jazz on a Saturday Night and a deeper look into the musicians Allison Au, James Suggs and Doug MacDonald highlight this show.
