Jazz A Love Affair 194.

Here is the play list for this weeks "Jazz A Love Affair" Part 2, of this weeks show is very interesting for me, as one of my very early hero's Joe Harriott would have had a birthday this week, born on 15th July 1928 and only live to be 44 years old. So in just over twenty years in the UK he made himself a jazz legend and died a very sad man. I also celebrate the birthdays of Hank Mobley, Henry Lowther and Joe Zawinal, so should be a good show. Here is your link thejazzrep.podomatic.com Part 1, Mark Lockheart - It Don't Mean A Thing, 2012, Ellington In Anticipation. Hank Mobley - Baptist Beat, 1960, Roll Call. The Great Wee Band - Light Blue, 2011, Light Blue. Two from Joe Zawinul Cannonball Adderley Quintet - 74 Miles Away, 1967, 74 Miles Away. Nils Landgren/Joe Sample - Soul Shadow, 2005, Creole Love Call. Joe Zawinul + WDR Big Band - Carnavalito, 2006, Brown St. Part 2, Joe Harriott, born 15th July 1928. Joe Harriott Quintet - Subject, 1961, Abstract. Joe Harriott Quintet - Variations On Monk, 1962, BBC Jazz For Moderns. Michael Garrick Quintet - Little Girl, 1965, October Woman. Joe Harriott/Pat Smythe - Abstract Doodle, 1968, Portrait. Joe Harriott - Night In Tunisia, 1963, Live At Harry's 1963. Joe Harriott/John Meyer Double Quintet - Paritta, 1967, Indo Jazz Fusion
