Jazz Profiles featuring Frank Strozier

Sunday, October 19, 2014 - 2:00pm to 7:00pm

Tune into our weekly Jazz Profile this Sunday for a look at the music of alto saxophonist Frank Strozier. Born in 1937, Strozier became a talented figure in hard-bop, performing with Harold Mabern, George Coleman, and Booker Little in the 50s. After a brief stint in the Miles Davis Quintet, Strozier went on to play with Roy Haynes, Chet Baker, Shelly Manne, Woody Shaw, Horace Parlan and the Don Ellis Big Band during the 60s and 70s. With a style on the horn that calls to mind Jackie McLean, Strozier leaves us with number of underrecognized recorings both as a leader and a sideeman. Check out our Jazz Profile to learn more about his work and hear the music he gave us throughout his career.
