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

Title JALC Radio - Coltrane and Hartman: They Say It's Wonderful
Season 15, Episode 50
Airdate 09/04/2008
Description Recreating songs that have been done flawlessly might seem audacious. But if tenor saxophonists stopped playing songs just because Coltrane performed them perfectly, dozens of tunes would never be heard live again. And closing off possibilities was the opposite of what John Coltrane was all about.
