The Archive begins a tour of America's "Great Jazz Cities" with the stories and sounds of jazz in Philadelphia, talking with historian Diane Turner about how union politics shaped the Philly jazz scene, and getting to know the Philadelphia guitar-violin duo that beat Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli to the punch. And it takes a look at the life and legend of Hammond B3 organ pioneer Jimmy Smith, and explore the brilliant and tragic story of Philadelphia's favorite son Clifford Brown (4 of 9, PRX).
