Every year we get further removed from Duke, Miles, Trane, Sonny, Diz, Monk, Blakey, Ella and Evans, and those that played with them or knew them personally. There will soon come a day when all the stories of and lessons from these jazz greats will be at least third-hand.</p><p> Sat, 01 Mar 2014 19:39:23 +0000 Jason Parker 14317 at http://kplu.org I’ve Seen The Future Of Jazz, And It’s In Good Hands Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival returns to north central Idaho http://kplu.org/post/lionel-hampton-jazz-festival-returns-north-central-idaho <p>The Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival is back for another year at the University of Idaho in Moscow.
