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.
