Eventbrite is presenting another program from the UCLA Film & Television Archive featuring three episodes of the short-lived FRANKLY JAZZ TV series that aired on local Los Angeles television from August of 1962 through January of 1963 when it was replaced by THE RAY ANTHONY SHOW on KTLA channel 5. This has been one of my research areas for years, still trying to run down every episode. The quality of the broadcast should be excellent as the source is 2" videotape. Here is a link to the UCLA announcement: https://www.cinema.ucla.edu/events/2021/05/06/frankly-jazz-three-preserved-episodes
This week on Night Lights it’s “The Arrival of Victor Feldman.” Multi-instrumentalist Victor Feldman was a musical prodigy who sat in on drums with Glenn Miller’s Army Air Force Band at the age of 10 and was hailed by the English press as “Kid Krupa.” After continuing his rise to fame in the 1950s British jazz world, Feldman moved to America and eventually made his way to the West Coast jazz scene. We’ll hear the records he made both as a sideman and a leader, playing piano and vibes with Cannonball Adderley, Shelly Manne, Miles Davis, and Scott La Faro. You can read a 1971 interview with Feldman here. “The Arrival of Victor Feldman” airs Saturday, December 9 at 11:05 p.m. EST on WFIU and at 9 p.m. Central Time on WNIN-Evansville. It also airs Sunday at 10 p.m. EST on Michigan's Blue Lake Public Radio. The program will be posted Monday afternoon in the Night Lights archives. Next week: "A Jazzy Quartet." Jazz soloists and ensembles accompanied by string quartets.
