Each Wednesday at 7 PM we RELAX, BREATH DEEPLY and LISTEN to MUSIC in DISTANT TIMES & SPACES on ANALOG LP records.
DUKE ELLINGTON lost not only a professional colleague, a much-loved younger friend, but also one-half of his MUSICAL SOUL when BILLY STRAYHORN died in 1967. Let's hear parts of the memorial album from 1968 “. . . . AND HIS MOTHER CALLED HIM BILL”
We go back 10 more years to 1958 and the
NEWPORT JAZZ FESTIVAL with the great Soul/Gospel singer MAHALIA JACKSON
What music could possibly follow? Only MOZART: His SUMMATION PIECE, astonishing audiences since first played around 1800: SYMPHONY 41: FINALE
AND back to the DUKE with his spontaneous piano performance of BILLY'S “LOTUS BLOSSOM.”
