Monday at 9 pm
11/6 Barry Harris
A master of jazz piano in the tradition of Bud Powell and Thelonious Monk, Barry Harris is one of the last remaining giants of the 1950s, and has never stopped playing at the highest level of musicianship, and his work as a teacher has inspired new generations to keep the flames burning.
11/13 Frank Strozier
One of the great bebop stylists of the 60s, alto saxophonist Frank Strozier had a unique sound that balanced warmth and bite, a driving rhythmic feel, and a singular command of harmony in his lines. He dropped from the scene in the 70s, leaving the jazz world wanting more.
11/20 Bobby Bradford
One of the great brass players of the free jazz world, Bobby Bradford was an early compatriot of Ornette Coleman, with whom he recorded and played through some of Coleman’s most important periods. He distinguished himself as one of the few original voices on the cornet, and has played a role in re-popularizing the instrument with jazz musicians.
11/27 Trudy Pitts
An underrated, hard swinging organist who sprung from the fertile jazz scene in Philadelphia, Pitts went from classical training at Temple and Julliard to playing and recording with jazz legends like Gene Ammons and Sonny Stitt. Her albums often contained pop repertoire, but her treatment of the tunes was deep soul-jazz.
JAZZ Night in America with christian mcbride Tuesday at 9 pm
11/7 Louis Hayes at Jazz at Lincoln Center
Jazz Night in America celebrates the 80th Birthday of Louis Hayes in concert at Jazz at Lincoln Center, and in the studio, in conversation with host Christian McBride.
11/14 Marilyn May, Cabaret
88-year old singer and actress Marilyn Maye is a living legend. She’s shared the stage with artists like Count Basie and Charlie Parker, and appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson an unprecedented 76 times. Now, for the first time, May performs at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s most intimate venue — Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola.
11/21 A Tribute to Saxophonist Grover Washington Jr. 11/28 Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society
Jazz Night in America presents Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society and their latest project, Real Enemies. Argue describes the piece a “an exploration of real world beliefs, of the present day folklore that we call conspiracy theories.” Musically, Real Enemies draws from 12-tone compositional techniques along with a collage of found text and media from dozens of sources that trace the historical roots, iconography, ideology, rhetoric, and psychology of these conspiracies.

piano jazz WITH marian mcpartland Wednesday at 9 pm
11/1 Teri Thornton
Vocalist and pianist Teri Thornton (1934 – 2000) first wowed audiences in 1963 with her hit recording of Somewhere in the Night from the television series Naked City. On this Piano Jazz, she and McPartland team up for an unforgettable I’ll Be Seeing You.
11/8 Ruth Laredo
One of the premier classical pianists of her generation, Ruth Laredo (1937 – 2005) was known as America’s First Lady of the Piano. In this 2004 Piano Jazz session, Laredo and McPartland juxtapose Chopin with Jobim, and Scriabin with Stella by Starlight.
11/15 Milt Hinton
Milt Hinton (1920 – 2000) was one of the world’s legendary bass players. In a career that spanned eight decades, he played with just about everyone, from Cab Calloway to Ellington to Coltrane.
11/22 Ellyn Rucker
Ellyn Rucker’s light sensual vocals and smooth swinging piano produce a wonderfully intriguing mixture. On this 1993 Piano Jazz, her versatility is evident.
11/29 Claudio Roditi
Trumpeter/flugelhornist Claudio Roditi was McPartland’s guest for this 1996 Piano Jazz session. With McPartland at the piano, Gary Mazzaroppi on bass, and Roditi on his horn, the three dish up I Remember April and Speak Low.
JAZZ PROFILES WITH NANCY WILSON Thursday at 9 pm
11/2 Organist Jimmy Smith
This tribute explores Smith’s early days in Philadelphia and shows how he brought the Hammond organ to the forefront of jazz. We’ll also explore his work with trios and big bands, and his work with jazz greats such as Wes Montgomery and Oliver Nelson.
11/9 Bandleader/Composer Louis Jordan
Louis Jordan was among the first black entertainers to be successful in a wider pop market and his music is often cited as one of the roots of rock and roll. He was also underrated as a jazz musician, both a fine clarinetist and alto saxophonist.
11/16 Pianist/Vocalist Shirley Horn
Pianist/Vocalist Horn enjoyed popularity and then disappeared from the spotlight to raise her daughter. She burst on the scene again in the ‘90s with several recordings six consecutive Grammy nominations, and a 1998 Grammy award for Best Jazz Vocal Performance.
11/23 Pianist George Shearing
Blind from birth, George Shearing was considered Britain’s most popular jazz pianist. In 1947 he settled in New York where he was strongly influenced by the bebop style. Despite an often pop-oriented sound, Shearing is first and foremost a swinging improviser.
11/30 Reedman James Moody
Whether playing the saxophone or flute, or singing a few bars of his favorite tune, Moody’s expressions are marked by wit and fluidity. This program highlights Moody’s work with Dizzy Gillespie, and his treatment of I’m in the Mood for Love — better known as Moody’s Mood.
