Joe Williams on Jazz Profiles (December 17-18)
[NPR Now/106]
With his rich, bass-baritone voice, Joe Williams (1918-1999) captured the passion and feeling of the blues like few others. The Grammy Award-winning Williams is best known for his ten years as a vocalist in the Count Basie Orchestra. His signature tune, "Everyday I Have the Blues," soared to the top of the R&B charts when it was first introduced with Basie. Joe remained active until the end of his life, "pickin' the plums," as he put it, working the world over in small groups and with reincarnations of the Basie Band.  Hear his story this Friday at 11 p.m. ET, repeated on Saturday at 9 p.m. ET.

The 2-disc set captures the Monk quartet performing everywhere from Monterey to Copenhagen.  Joel will chat with morning host Matt Abramovitz at 11 a.m. ET about when he first heard Monk, how he found these tapes, and what he learned in the process.
