Han Bennink
WKCR, Columbia University's world-class jazz-radio outlet, celebrates the 70th birthday—and five-decade career—of Han Bennink at tonight's special show, the climax of a five-day on-air marathon beginning Apr 17. (Tune in at www.wkcr.org.) Here the Dutch drum marvel, whose super-charismatic style embodies a rare blend of swing era showmanship and free-jazz abandon, improvises with a revolving cast of players, including reedist Michael Moore, synth player Richard Teitelbaum, trombonist Ray Anderson, pianist Uri Caine and others.
