Tales from the far Side 10.12.20 Jazz Artists who died young

On this edition I feature Jazz legends who tragically died young but who, in the short period of their creativity, left some amazing music behind. You can hear music by Clifford Brown, fats Navarro, Charlie Christian, Bunny Berigan, Lee Morgan, Jaco Pastorius and Charlie Parker. In the second hour I feature McCoy Tyner's Blue Note Classic "The Real McCoy" in its entire length.

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.
