In honor of Thanksgiving, we produced a powerful hour of jazz affectionately called "Jazzgiving"—a carefully prepared hour of music with all the trimmings. We begin with Maynard Ferguson and move on to Kenny Dorham. We continue to dial up heavyweights with Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck. We close out the hour with Eric Dolphy and music from his iconic album Out to Lunch. Dig this special hour of jazz.
