Live on WPKN Radio

This is what WPKN posted on its Facebook page yesterday while I was on the radio. And someone called in a pledge to get a copy of the book that I donated.
Woody Herman led a band for six decades, and in those six decades, granted complete musical freedom to only two sidemen: Drummers Dave Tough and Jake Hanna. Because of their taste, time, ability to swing, support and play for the band, the Old Woodchopper let them play any way they wanted. In the process, Tough and Hanna became legends.
There’s a new book out about one of those legends, Jake Hanna, and it stands as essential reading. For anyone who can read.
Maria S. Judge, Hanna’s niece, has written her uncle’s biography, Jake Hanna: The Rhythm and Wit of a Swinging Jazz Drummer
Yesterday at 3:38pm
