Jazz Greats and Legends

Nothing like listening to jazz legends to lift ones spirits. The blues of Miles Davis, a 1958 performance of Summertime.




And now Charlie Parker's artistic interpretation of the same tune. Another jazz legend and one of the greatest sax men of his time.




What the hell, I've went this far so why not a couple more?

The smooth jazz licks of Van Morrison and the immortal Moondance, 1970...




And now a blast from perhaps Canada's most famous jazz artist and incomparable trumpet master, Maynard Ferguson. Tonights wrap is one of the finest high note trumpet tunes of the 70's, Give it One.






And now for a glass of  fine old vine Zinfindel, full body, dry, with a earthiness worthy of great jazz artistry.
