It comes from Bill Kirchner, frequent Rifftides commenter, stalwart broadcaster and man of many parts, usually on reed instruments in the key of B-flat.
Recently, I taped my next one-hour show for the “Jazz From the Archives” series. Presented by the Institute of Jazz Studies, the series runs every Sunday on WBGO-FM (88.3).
Tenor saxophonist Jay Corre’s (né Lischin) career goes back to the 1940s with the Raymond Scott and Boyd Raeburn orchestras. But his time in the spotlight came in 1966-67, when he became the most frequently featured soloist in drummer Buddy Rich’s big band. Corre’s warm, Lester Young/Dexter Gordon-like style served him well in a variety of moods, from ballads to burners.
We’ll hear Corre on several albums with the Rich band, and on a recent trio recording.
The show will air this Sunday, November 22, from 11 p.m. to midnight, Eastern Standard Time.
