Jazz After Dark, June 6, 2023

Tonight on Jazz After Dark: a retrospective of the career of jazz pianist Earl Hines. His career spanned 1920 to 1983 and bridged early jazz, swing, bebop, and more. In his later career resurgence he did many solo performances and duets, producing over a hundred albums in the 1960s and '70s.

We’ll hear selections from his early work with Louis Armstrong, some swing recordings from Chicago in the 1930s, some live performances solo and with his orchestra from the 1950s and '60s, and then duets with Johnny Hodges, Jimmy Rushing, and Paul Gonsalves. Then a bit of Gershwin and a live performance from 1973.
