Two Tenors: Swingin', Boppin', and Playing Free.

Friday, Mayhem 10 10:00am — 2:00pm

DJ Albion Moonlight looks at the careers of two stalwart tenor players,
Lucky Thompson and Fred Anderson.   
Thompson started in the swing era but then worked with Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, 
Charles Mingus and other pioneers of bebop.
Anderson started playing in the bop idiom but quickly moved to free jazz after hearing Ornette Coleman.
In 2001, author John Litweiler called Anderson "the finest tenor saxophonist in free jazz/underground jazz/outside jazz today."

Tune in for some Mayhem tenor madness.
