Jazz with Steve Schwartz 06/15/2012

This episode celebrates jazz pianist Jaki Byard. He was born in Worcester, MA 90 years ago. He died in 1999. Jaki had a most eclectic style and in one solo could go from straight ahead bebop to old school stride to free and out ideas from the "new jazz" school of the 1960s. (Photo: 1984 Patrick Hinely)
