This week, we celebrate Philly icon, vibraphonist Kahn Jamal who we lost this week at age 75. Next, a 70th birthday shout out to bassist/composer William Parker, and other tributes. Then, new music from Philly with Sonic Liberation Front, and South Africa with Malcolm Jiyane Tree-O. Welcome friends and neighbors to The Jazz Continuum. Old, new, in, out...wherever the music takes us. Each week, we will explore the elements of jazz from a historical perspective.
