In the first part of the show [click here to listen to it] we focused on jazz inspired by the music composed by James Barry for the James Bond series. Here we switch our attention to other great soundtrack composers like Lalo Schifrin, or Quincy Jones, and other movie characters like Sherlock Holmes, Ms. Marple, Nero Wolfe or Dirty Harry. And we look into how Charlie Parker became Charlie Chan. We then wrap things up with the daughter of the writer of the "Detective Writer Daughter." Not sure what does that mean? Well, then play this episode to find out!

Happy listening!

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
