Jazz with George Thomas on VPR with Slim Gaillard, Frank Wess for Wednesday, 01/04/12 

We celebrate the birthday of the very funny vocalist & guitarist Slim Gaillard, who once led a band that included Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker. We also send birthday wishes to the 90 year old flute, alto sax and tenor sax player Frank Wess, who was part of the best Count Basie Orchestra of the 1950's.
