All That Jazz Ike Quebec and John Hardee Ann Porotti 9:00 AM
Two unheralded tenor saxophonists–Ike Quebec and John Hardee, both born in 1918.  Quebec came from Newark, New Jersey, and was schooled in the “Harlem incubators of bop.”  At his best Quebec shaped his style from the pioneers of jazz, but his magnificent sound lost years to heroin, illness and Rikers Island Prison.  Hardee was reared and educated in church-going Corsicana County, Texas.  Most of his career was spent in Texas teaching high school music except for a few years working with Tiny Grimes in the 1940’s, and a stint in 1975 when he appeared to great acclaim at the Nice Jazz Festival. There was, however, a brief window–1944-46–when both men recorded for the legendary Blue Note at the WOR Studios;  Mosaic Records has remastered these extraordinary and rare performances to compact disc. Join Ann Porotti in this Black History Month Celebration of two great tenor saxophonists–Ike Quebec and John Hardee.

Six musical selections each, from four black entertainers. Featuring Al Hibbler, the Mills Brothers, Jonah Jones & Johnny Mathis.
Walk Right In Fiddles and Banjos in African-American Music Rebecca Foster 12 Noon
For much of the second half of the 20th century most people thought of fiddles and banjos as belonging to the bluegrass and mountain traditions of Anglo-Americans, forgetting that the banjo was invented by African-Americans and the fiddle was adopted for the early blues.  Recently, with Otis Taylor’s “Recapturing the Banjo,” Boyd Tinsley of the Dave Matthews Band and groups like The Carolina Chocolate Drops, there’s been a joyful return to fiddles and banjos by African-American musicians.  And, let’s not forget Papa John Creach, Clarence Gatemouth Brown and Taj Mahal who were playing these instruments all along, not to mention more obscure but equally talented Louisiana Creole fiddlers.  We’ll listen to a sampling of music starting with early string and jug bands, like Cannon’s Jug Stompers and the Mississippi Sheiks, banjo songsters like Dink Roberts and John Snipes, and Creole fiddlers like Canray Fontenot.  We’ll finish with some of the newer sounds of Fiddles and Banjos in 21st century African-American music.
