Jazz From Studio 61 was a CBS show hosted by Robert Herridge that aired on February 15, 1960. It was part of the network's Herridge-produced Robert Herridge Theater series. For this half-hour jazz program, Herridge brought together two groups—one led by tenor saxophonist Ben Webster and the other by pianist Ahmad Jamal. In the past, I've only found this show chopped up into segments on YouTube. Now it looks like Don Kaart has uploaded a top-quality print of the entire show.
Webster's group featured Webster (ts), Buck Clayton (tp), Vic Dickenson (tb), Hank Jones (p), George Duvivier (b) and Jo Jones (d).
Jamal's trio consisted of Jamal (p), Israel Crosby (b) and Vernell Fournier (d). That's jazz critic Nat Hentoff with the pipe and his wife at the time.
I love jazz because transports me to another reality.
I was first exposed to jazz a concert on the lake many years ago.
I met many musicians at various international jazz festivals.
The best show I ever attended was Jazzascona in Suisse.
The first jazz record I bought was Miles Davis and John Coltrane.
My advice to new listeners is listen to music with an open mind.
Listen, think and share jazz everywhere.
