Phil Schaap was THE great champion of jazz.
Among his countless contributions to the music, he managed and promoted the Countsmen, former sidemen of Count Basie’s and other distinguished big band alumni.
Phil never shined as brightly when he was championing the career of Eddie Durham, one of the geniuses from that era. If you listen to no other Phil programs, make sure you catch this one.
