With artists like Kurt Elling, Poncho Sanchez, Marlena Shaw and the Count Basie Orchestra appearing at the festival, you never know who'll stop by to say hello. Jazz Unlimited airs weekdays from 6 am to 12 noon ET.
Johnny Griffin on Jazz Profiles (September 3-4)
Tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin is known as the "Little Giant," a man of small stature who casts an enormous shadow over the jazz firmament. His style, technique, and attitude place him among that select group of players who emerged during the heyday of bebop, and he remains a vibrant practitioner and spiritual guru of the idiom today. His career is a classic jazz journey, from Chicago's legendary Du Sable High School to a rhythm and blues band, to Lionel Hampton's orchestra, to sessions with Thelonious Monk, to a masterful leader of his own bands. Hear his story Friday at 11 p.m. ET, repeated on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET.
