Cecil McBee featured on Jazz Profiles: Sunday, July 14th at 2pm
This week's Jazz Profiles will feature the bassist Cecil McBee, who is one of the most influential post-bop bass players in the history of jazz. He has been sideman on legendary albums with Pharoah Sanders, Jackie McLean, Yusef Lateef and many more. The vastness of his work is not primarily in the numbers of albums he appeared on, but in how many different people he worked with, and how reluctant he was to settle in a musical comfort zone. Tune in this Sunday at 2pm to hear from his wide-ranging sidemen work as well as his leader recordings.
