Jazz at Lincoln Center Radio Remembers Ed Bradley

Revered journalist and 60 Minutes correspondent Ed Bradley, a lifelong jazz fan who passed away of leukemia complications in November, will be honored over the next month by the nationally syndicated Jazz at Lincoln Center Radio, the Peabody Award-winning series that Bradley hosted for 14 years until just before his death.

The special-edition, one-hour program, titled “Jazz at Lincoln Center, Remembering Ed Bradley,” is hosted by [email protected] Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis and features many of Bradley’s close friends and colleagues reminiscing over the much-respected Philadelphian, including former President Bill Clinton, actor Bill Cosby, musicians Irma Thomas and Jimmy Buffett and 60 Minutes creator Don Hewitt. The program also highlights clips of Bradley’s commentary from the series and the music that he adored, such as Bud Powell’s “Celia” (as performed by Tommy Flanagan, George Mraz and Kenny Washington), Erroll Garner’s “Teach Me Tonight” and Jimmy Heath’s “The Big P.” It will be available on radio on the Content Depot after Dec. 26 and will uplink on Dec. 28 at 5 p.m. EST; it will remain available until Jan. 11, 2007.
