New Day Jazz
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHARLIE PARKER!
This afternoon, on the four o'clock hour, poet, playwright, essayist, and novelist, Ishmael Reed (pictured here, on the left, with Professor William C. Cook), returns to New Day Jazz. Along with the current events of the day, such as Wall $treet's financiers turning against Obama, neo-fascist demagogue and Fox News commentator, Glenn Beck, and midtown Manhattan's proposed Muslim Cultural Center, we will be discussing the forthcoming American Book Awards. Sponsored by the Before Columbus Foundation, of which Mr. Reed is a founder, the American Book Award, now in it's 31st year, honors excellence in multicultural literature.
Also, as part of this afternoon's broadcast, we will listen in on selections from the rare boxed set, issued in Japan only, The Other Side Of Blue Note 1500 Series, featuring outtakes and unissued cuts from classic sessions under the leadership of Lee Morgan, Herbie Nichols, Johnny Griffin, Bud Powell, and Bennie Green featuring the one and only Babs Gonzalez.
In addition, we will be focusing on the poetry of Jayne Cortez and Kenneth Patchen, throughout today's program, with particular attention on the recordings, Celebrations & Solitudes, featuring Ms. Cortez with bassist Richard Davis, and Selected Poems of Kenneth Patchen, recorded by Patchen himself for Folkways Records.
