My Kinda Town

David Brent Johnson's latest Night Lights Classic Jazz webcast is "Chicago Calling: Unsung Heroes of the City's Hardbop Scene".
As you will gather this isn't about Condon or Bix or some urban blues guys but about how it was for hardbop players like Ira Sullivan, Wilbur Ware and Von Freeman blowing in the Windy City back in the '50s and early '60s.
Tracks from the above guys plus Johnny Griffin, Gene Shaw and more.
Well worth a visit and a listen to music introduced by the coolest voice in Cyberia.
Lance.
