This edition of Jazz Profiles featured the music of composer and pianist Randy Weston (b. 1926). We heard from Weston as a leader beginning with his earliest small group recordings, then through live festival dates, large ensemble pieces arranged by collaborator Melba Liston, and solo piano recordings.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the 1960 album Uhuru Afrika, Weston's tribute to the seventeen African nations that gained independence that year, Randy Weston & His Orchestra will perform Saturday November 13th at the BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center.
