JALC Radio - Speaking in Jazz: Oscar Brown Jr., Gil Scott Heron, Yusef Komunyakaa

 
Title JALC Radio - Speaking in Jazz: Oscar Brown Jr., Gil Scott Heron, Yusef Komunyakaa
Season 15, Episode 48
Airdate 21/08/2008
Hosted by Ed Bradley


Verse and verve, when word-struck musicians and jazz-possessed poets share our stage. We feature one of Oscar Brown, Jr.'s last performances, including his lyrical "Round Midnight." Strong words from Gil Scott-Heron and Pulitzer Prize–winner Yusef Komunyakaa, punctuated by the saxophone of Sonny Fortune, Reggie Workman's bass, and Rashied Ali's drums.
