The rhythm of Al Harewood

Drummer Al Harewood anchored a slew of classic albums in the 50's and 60's, including a number of Blue Note records. Albums by the likes of Dexter Gordon, Stanley Turrentine, Horace Parlan, Lou Donaldson, Grant Green, Cutis Fuller, J.J. Johnson and Kai Winding, Ike Quebec, Dizzy Reece and Bobby Hutcherson featured the drumming of this under-appreciated titan and future music educator. Tune in this Wednesday night for a sample of  classic cuts with many of these great players. What I like About Jazz, Wednesday, March 19, at 8:30 Mountain.
