Congratulations, Richard Davis

In honor of today's big news—Richard Davis has been named a 2014 NEA Jazz Master!—I'm posting a 2010 episode of WKCR's Jazz Profiles program that I curated/hosted with my friend Russell Baker. (Context here.) You'll hear a career-spanning selection of Richard Davis music, as well as excerpts from an interview I conducted with Mr. Davis a few weeks before the show originally aired. The running time is roughly three hours. To listen, please use the Streampad player at the bottom of the page; parts I, II and III of the Richard Davis show are the first three files in the playlist.  

You can download the three parts of the show here:

Richard Davis - WKCR - I
Richard Davis - WKCR - II
Richard Davis - WKCR - III

P.S. Please pardon the poor audio quality of the interview segments—the phone connection was iffy. I'm pretty sure I've decoded all of what Richard said, so e-mail me if you have any specific questions.
