Jazz: Joe Pass, Melba Liston

01/13/10 9:00PM By George Thomas

As the sad news continues out of Haiti, we share songs with the group Mozayik and their 2005 release Haitian Creole Jazz. Guitarist Joe Pass's birthday includes duets with Ella Fitzgerald, Zoot Sims's tenor sax and pianist Jimmy Rowles. We also hear from Melba Liston, trombonist and arranger with Randy Weston.
