This week host Dick Fairly wraps up his  weekly Jazz Excursion on 91.5 KRCC by stopping at important milestones along the evolutionary route of classic jazz.

Dick will start his final excursion with Louie Armstrong  in 1927 and end 40 years later with John Coltrane in 1967. The stops will include the seminal recordings of Louie, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Coleman Hawkins, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Jerry Mulligan, Miles Davis, Joe Morello, John Lewis, Trane, and others. 

Although Dick has reached the finish line of his weekly journey on The Jazz Excursion Sunday evenings at 7, the jazz baton will be picked up by Tim Everett Sunday evenings on 91.5 KRCC.
