This episode of Piano Jazz remembers one of the great innovators of the bebop style: pianist Duke Jordan (1922 — 2006). He’s perhaps best known for his innovative work with Charlie Parker‘s legendary 1947 quintet, and he played with a number of other legends, including Stan Getz, Coleman Hawkins and Sonny Stitt. Jordan joined host Marian McPartland in 1980 for a session including duets on “Groovin’ High” and his original “Jordu.”

Originally broadcast in the fall of 1980.
