EPISODES OF AMERICAN ROUTES WITH RANDY WESTON

FROM THE SHOW: LAZY LESTER / RANDY WESTON

Randy Weston is a towering man who has made a lot of influential sounds through five decades in jazz and world music. His musical reach on the piano is impressive. He is known also for elaborate soundscapes that evoke the Africa he lived in for many years. Weston talks about growing up with his feet planted firmly in Brooklyn, but with ears and a spirit that have travelled the world.

BLUES AND JAZZ, AFRICAN ROOTS AND BRANCHES WITH SHEMEKIA COPELAND & BALLA KOUYATé

It's Blueswomen, Jazzmen, African roots and branches. Chicago blues singer Shemekia Copeland's father, the late blues guitarist Johnny Copeland, brought her into his music as a child. As an adult, she found new ways to use blues to express her perspective. We'll hear from some of Shemekia's heroes including Etta James, Ruth Brown, Alberta Hunter and Big Mama Thornton. Then a conversation and performance by Boston-based Mandinka balafon player Balla Kouyaté and music inspired by and from the continent of Africa from Randy Weston, Miriam Makeba and the Modern Jazz Quartet.
