Tales from the far Side 07.11.19 Characters and Jazz around 52nd Street

On this edition I would like to bring you back in time for a stroll down 52nd Street in the heart of New York City to meet some legendary characters of Jazz and to inhale some of the hot spot's musical vibrations with music by Tadd Dameron, Harlan Leonrad's Rockets, Sarah Vaughan, John Coltrane, Chu Berry, Joe Lovano, Jack Bruce as well as Charlie, Miles and Dizzy.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
