We keep our traction here in 2020 as we begin the 629th Episode of Neon Jazz with talented modern day drummer Tyshawn Sorey. We talked about his roots and influneces in jazz and he noted Duke Ellington, John Coltrane and Dizzy Gillespie. From there, we get into new tunes for the new year with Canadian cat Aaron Dolman and new politically charged music from a musician with deep Kansas City roots in Karrin Allyson. As the jazz world comes to grips with the loss of guitar great Vic Juris on the last day of 2019, we give him a fitting shout out. We wind the show down with some classics from Dizzy Reece and Don Redman. Finally, we are thrilled here at the show that the prolific Yelena Eckemoff has new work in her latest 2019 CD Nocturnal Animals. Dig this show.....
