Dry River Jazz: A Return to Burnsland

Jan 14, 2017

On January 11, 2017, we lost an irreplaceable member of the family: Bob Burns. Join Trevor Hodgkins as he pays tribute to Bob by opening the doors once more to the greatest little jazz club in the world...Burnsland.

We'll hear from many of Bob's favorites during the show including The Four Freshmen, John Coltrane, Helen Sachs, and, of course, Stan Kenton.  But it all pales in comparison to simply hearing the great Bob Burns again.

Join Dry River Jazz host Trevor Hodgkins as he talks with guitarist/vocalist Jeffrey Scott Radaich about gypsy jazz, rock and roll, "referential integrity" and how it all came together to form the exciting  band The Black Market Trust. Featuring the music of Django Reinhardt, Gonzalo Bergara, and, of course, The Black Market Trust.
