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.
This evening, C. Lavender was in studio to play a live set. We started off the program listening to a 12 minute set, and then went on to listen to some more pieces by C. Lavender as we spoke to her about upcoming projects, shows, and collaborations. For more information about Lavender and her music and art, please check out www.clavender.net.
