The Hot Box #034 – A to Z of Jazz Piano Part 12 – The Letter L & M (part 1)

The letter M is the most popular opener for surnames, and pianist aren’t excepted, so the M file is to spread over two shows, PLUS we complete the L file with popular Irish-based pianist and composer, Greg Lloyd.  And - another double L, Lou Levy, one of the most revered vocal accompanists of all time.

We are still seeking recordings by Irish pianists, so if you know of any, let us know. The Hot Box is released on every 2 weeks and can be heard on-line around the world. Tell your jazz loving friends, and talk to us direct with comments and suggestions to
