Mafalda puts jazz’s iconic element under the microscope, and finds works of art by Weldon Irvine, Sun Ra, and Stanley Cowell.

In this episode of the Tropic Of Love, Mafalda explores jazz piano in some of its many different forms, from improvisations by influential players to classic compositions, such as Theolonius Monk playing Duke Ellington, or Kenny Barron playing music by long-time collaborator Cecil McBee. We’ll also hear a funky interpretation of Naima by Gene Harris, Mary Lou Williams’ Pale Blue, and McCoy Tyner’s Song Of Happiness to name just a few. So sit back and enjoy the next two hours of the sound of the keys of jazz.
