Little Jazz and not Bird on Wednesday January 30, 2013
There will be no Bird Flight on WKCR next Wednesday 1/30.
Instead WKCR – 89.9 FM in the New York City region and wkcr.org online – will play ROY “Little Jazz” ELDRIDGE all day.
The live broadcast of Roy in various discussions at The West End on his 76th birthday (1/30/1987) will be aired at 8:20am ET and a much longer interview done on his 77th birthday (1/30/1988) will be aired at 6:00pm ET
A Lot of Little Jazz on WKCR: January 30, 2013
Here are a couple more videos to whet your appetite. First a classic of Roy and Anita O'Day with Gene Krupa's Big Band from a sound.
Now here is a clip of Roy handling (among other things) a blues associated with Eddie 'Cleanhead' Vinson, Kidney Stew.
