Jazz Bastard Podcast 128 - Make it Big
Nov 15, 2017
Mike and Pat welcome special guest Eric Allen, co-author of 50 Years at the Village Vanguard – Thad Jones, Mel Lewis and the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, and discuss the book along with early recordings by the band and a couple other seventies big bands. All three agree - ain't no way Pat's letting Maynard Ferguson into his blanket fort. Thad Jones / Mel Lewis Big Band – LIVE AT THE VILLAGE VANGUARD, PRESENTING THE JAZZ ORCHESTRA; ALL OUR YESTERDAYS (disc 1); Maynard Ferguson – MF HORN; Toshiko Akiyoshi – EUROPEAN MEMOIRS.
