Tales from the far Side 09.04.20 I got Rhythm- journey and evolution of a tune

On this edition I try to capture the magic, development and evolution of George Gershwin's "I got Rhythm" on its journey through the history of Jazz up to today as a true Jazz standard and an inspiration for many Jazz artists to write, perform and record their own music. You can hear versions of the original tune by Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Gordon Brisker and Art Tatum as well as new songs based on the Gershwin classic by Sidney Bechet, Jimmie Lunceford, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Gerry Mulligan with Thelonious Monk and Ornette Coleman.

Tales from the far Side 12.03.20 Remembering McCoy Tyner

On this edition I pay tribute to the late great McCoy Tyner, one of the greatest Jazz pianists of our time who sadly passed away on the 6th of March at the age of 81. And I am looking back at his extraordinary career as a member of the ground-breaking classic John Coltrane Quartet and as a leader of his own groups.
