Cary Ginell: Mr B

Wednesday, April 2, 2014 - 3:30pm

Tonight on Inquiry we talk again with CARY GINELL, award-winning writer, jazz historian and discographer. This time around Gary talks about his latest jazz biography MR B: THE MUSIC AND LIFE OF BILLY ECKSTINE. Billy Eckstine is little remembered today, but in the 40s and 50s he was a signer as popular as Sinatra and Cosby. He was a fashion plate, a crooner, a band leader and a musician whose amazing career spanned seven decades. Tune in and find out what the bobby soxers were all screaming about.

Harvey Diamond & Jon Dreyer

Legendary pianist Harvey Diamond and bassist Jon Dreyer perform jazz standards and songs from the Great American Songbook, "honing gems...into personal statements that leave us yearning for more...Diamond is a master of both melody and harmony much like his predecessors in the legacy of jazz piano, Bill Evans and Lennie Tristano."

Morgan Scott Trio

Appearing the first Friday of each month at The Java Room, the trio consists of Morgan Scott on piano, Sven Larson on bass and Ed Conley on drums, percussion. “We create adventurous music of the moment...”spontaneous composition” at times, and traditional jazz standards at others. Sometimes a quick burst of an idea comes across one of our minds’ ear, and if we are free of ourselves we let that idea emerge. The rest of the group will react to the idea, or the idea presented exists as a counterpoint to whatever is already going on in the music.
