This week on The Jazz Continuum, Jazz with Strings. Not orchestra’s playing jazz, not easy listening muzak. But, some of our great jazz soloists tapping into their romantic sides by employing lush string sections. Charlie Parker hit it big with string sessions, many followed: Cannonball Adderley, Erroll Garner, Clifford Brown, Coleman Hawkins…with strings. Plus sting genre variations from Nels Cline and John & Alice Coltrane. And let’s not forget the vocalists, Diana Washington, Billie Holiday and Etta James … with strings.  Tune in!
