Legends of jazz with Ramsey Lewis season one - [Manteno, IL] LRSmedia 2006 - 3 videodiscs (ca. 90 minutes.) : col. and b&w

LEGENDS OF JAZZ with Ramsey Lewis will commence its weekly run on PBS stations in April 2006. Each weekly episode features a guest star performing several numbers with Ramsey and his trio. Between these informal performances, Ramsey and his guest artist chat casually about topics related to the show’s theme. Weekly episodes will focus on a single instrument, style or element of jazz. The feel is loose and improvisational, not dry or academic. All guest stars are world-class musicians known for their artistic gifts, their passion for music and the legends who came before them, and, of course, for their larger-than-life personalities, humor, fascinating stories, and riveting performances. Volume one: the Gold Horns, the Jazz Singers, Contemporary Jazz, the Altos. Volume two: the Piano Masters, Roots: the Blues, Ameircan Songbook, Latin Jazz. Volume three: the Tenors, Brazilian Jazz, the Killer Bs New Jazz Masters 2006.
