his early years

 

   Leonard Feather called John Lewis,

pianist, composer, arranger, and educator,

and the founder and driving force behind the MJQ,

'one of the most brilliant minds ever applied to jazz'.

We will explore the early years of his long and illustrious career today.

 

   After the 3:30 jazz calendar, we'll reflect on long-time guitar legend Kenny Burrell

and mention his current problems.

 

   Our May 29 show plans guest JD Stubenberg

to share details of the planned re-opening of iconic Portland jazz club Jimmy Mak's.
