A 1984 concert by Don Burrows in Melbourne has just been released as a double CD, after the decaying analogue audio was restored (in a microwave oven). The concert is a tribute to the music of Benny Goodman, and we’ll feature a track on this episode of Jazztrack.
With the Count Basie Orchestra about to arrive in Australia, we’ll hear from the orchestra and also a more intimate encounter between Count Basie and Zoot Sims.
Plus there’s music from Jan Garbarek, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny and the winner of this year’s ARIA for Best Jazz Album.
See the complete playlist here.
