Jazz: New Years & Best Of

12/29/09 9:00PM By George Thomas

We celebrate the tenor saxophonist Joe Lovano's birthday with his 2008 release Symphonica, his work with the John Pattituci Trio and his tribute to John Coltrane as part of The Steve Kuhn Trio's 2009 ECM release. We also sample from the 1959 Charles Mingus' Mingus Ah Um album.
