We begin the 771st Episode of Neon Jazz with South Carolina-based trumpeter Charlton Singleton with a song off his album Crossroads. From there, we hear from a legend and the headliner at Charlton's first jazz concert in Dizzy Gillespie. We also hear from some local Kansas City talent in veteran drummer Arnold Young, guitarist Alex Frank and singer Jenna Bauer. In between, we hear new music from Todd Herbert and Johnny Steele. Finally, we say good-bye to a jazz saint in Mr. Ramsey Lewis. Enjoy the jazz, my friends.
