Charles Bradley, the "Screaming Eagle of Soul," whose late-blossoming career was built on fiery performances that evoked his idol, James Brown, died in Brooklyn on Saturday, Sept. 23, according to a statement by his publicist.

If you pull a fire alarm in any large U.S. city, it's likely that paid firefighters waiting at a nearby station will quickly respond. But seven out of 10 American firefighters are volunteers. They cover vast sections of the country, making up an aging network that is increasingly understaffed and overworked.

Miles Davis was one of the most influential jazz musicians in the history of jazz - he was at the forefront of cool jazz, hard bop, modal jazz, orchestral arrangements, and jazz-fusion. 

His decline began in the mid-1970s, from which he never recovered during the 70s and 80s.  This week we’ll hear selections from his various periods, and explore the genius of Mile Davis' career. 

The Jazz Excursion is heard on 91.5 KRCC Sunday evenings from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

Sep 21, 2017
