Today marks the birthday of not one but two jazz masters: pianist Hank Jones (1918-2010) and guitarist Kenny Burrell (1931- ). Both natives of Detroit, Jones and Burrell collaborated often, and can be heard playing together on the video below, from Burrell’s 1962 album, Easy.

Embed your favorite performance by either or both of these masters for the rest of the jazz group to enjoy!

Jazz pianist and educator Billy Taylor was born on this day in 1921. He is perhaps best known for composing the standard "I Wish I Knew How it Would Feel to be Free," but he accomplished a great deal in his long career, as a performer, composer, and educator of jazz. To celebrate his birthday, here is a fascinating video clip where he explains and demonstrates the basics of jazz improvisation:

Thanks for sharing your cover, Paul. I like the relaxed tempo. I could hear this with muted trumpet. Here's the vocal rendition for folks to compare and contrast:

Sorry about the subpar audio/slightly out of tune piano, but here is my attempt at a jazz cover of "to make you feel my love" by Bob Dylan
