1959 was a Golden Year for jazz. It was a year in which some of the greatest innovators in jazz were recorded on five of the most influential albums in jazz history, and it was also a year in which three great jazz musicians died. 

This Sunday on the Jazz Excursion between 7 and 10 p.m., we’ll listen to those albums, and we’ll hear the music of the jazz musicians who made 1959 remarkable.

You can also listen to Dick's show in our updated 91.5 KRCC Mobile app available on iTunes and Google Play.
