Riverwalk Jazz Whenever You Want!

Riverwalk Jazz Whenever You Want!

By Mick Carlon The only drawback to my all-time favorite radio show, Riverwalk Jazz, was that I had to wait until Saturday mornings to listen. No longer! Thanks to Stanford University’s Archive of Recorded Sound, twenty five years of this exalted show—over 350 radio shows, over 4,000 song performances—are now available twenty four hours a day, seven days a ...

This week, Riverwalk Jazz celebrates the great voices of pre-WWII jazz trombone. The Jim Cullum Jazz Band joins forces with leading “old-school" players active today. Though all of them claim Jack Teagarden as a major influence and model for their playing, some have taken a special interest in the playing of other lesser-known but important historical figures of the trombone ...

Dan Barrett: Harlem 2000

Read "Harlem 2000" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Leader Dan Barrett’s name was the only one familiar to me on this new Nagel-Heyer release (although I seem to have heard the name John Smith before).

Dan Barrett: Harlem 2000

Read "Harlem 2000" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

At Europe's version of Birdland, the label has taped some excellent live performances and this one is no exception. A little ragged now and then - - lack of rehearsal time perhaps - - Dan Barrett heads the group ...
