We roll out a new fixture during the last hour of The Nightside with Andy O’.

It’s called “Long Play” and it gives Nightside host Andy O’ the opportunity to explore the longest tracks of the KUVO library.

In honor of Herbie Hancock’s 80th birthday on April 12, (1940), Andy O’ will feature two of Herbie Hancock’s lengthier compositions.

At 11 pm we start with “The Egg” a 14-minute epic from the 1964 album “Empyrean Isles” with Freddie Hubbard, Ron Carter and Tony Williams joining Herbie.

Next from her album “High Priestess of Word” the late Poet Laureate of Los Angeles, Wanda Coleman with her 12-minute saga “Blues in the Night” accompanied by Pianist Marv Evans.

Finishing the Nightside Long Play another Herbie Hancock composition…the 19-minute opus from “Sextant” recorded in 1973 with his Mwandishi Band. A group that features Eddie Henderson, Bennie Maupin, Julian Priester, Buster Williams and Billy Hart.

Long Play, a deep dive during the last hour of The Nightside into the music that time forgot.

Tune in to The Nightside with Andy O’ on Sunday night, April 11, from 8 to midnight.
