Title JALC Radio - Philadelphia: More From the City of Brotherly Jazz
Season 4, Episode 4
Airdate 10/16/2008
Description While Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, and the New York scene took center stage in the early history of bebop, postwar Philadelphia was also a major proving ground for the new music. With audacious compositions and fresh solo styles, young men like Benny Golson, the Heath Brothers, Lee Morgan, Philly Joe Jones, Cal Massey, and a quiet music student by the name of John Coltrane, brought the new language of bebop into the clubs that dotted Columbia Avenue.
Hosted by Wendell Pierce
