Don and Alicia Cunningham, April 2012

    This I Love Jazz with Don Wolff episode is based in the Sheldon Concert Hall and Art Galleries in St. Louis. Performance and interview guests are St. Louis native Don Cunningham and his wife Alicia. For this program, they perform Big Band, Latin, and classic jazz with a large ensemble. Follow the I Love Jazz cameras as we take a trip down the Mississippi on the paddlewheeler Becky Thatcher and explore the history of music on the river – yesterday and today. From Don Wolff’s archives, our Jazz Gem features a rare performance from Bob Wilber’s Sidney Bichet Legacy Band with Pug Horton. You’ll meet our newest “Rising Star of Jazz” -Leo Davis. And in our educational segment, Building Blocks of Jazz, Phil Dunlap teams up with SIUE professor Rick Haydon in part two of the “Rhythm Guitar in Jazz”.
