This week we will we celebrate some birthdays including the legendary pianist Wynton Kelly known for his lively, blues-based playing and as one of the finest accompanists in jazz. I'll spin some tunes I heard at Jason Moran's Village Vanguard Thanksgiving weekend run; we'll play some music to get ready for Christian McBride's New Jawn here in Philly; and finally, let's check in with some recordings made on this day in history from John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins and David S. Ware. Old, new, in, out... wherever the music takes us. Each week, we will explore the elements of jazz from a historical perspective.
