Grace Kelly with Phil Woods at Newport Jazz Festival 2011
Airs Tuesday, December 13th at 9:00 p.m. The Boston-area alto saxophonist Grace Kelly is 19. The NEA Jazz Master and alto saxophonist Phil Woods is 79. But the ambitious Kelly has already won over many with impressive command of her instrument — including the fleet-fingered Woods, who entered the studio with her (and pianist Monty Alexander) in 2010 to make a recording. Man With The Hat salutes Woods' sartorial trademark; he'll be Kelly's guest at the Harbor Stage in Newport. Recorded live at the Newport Jazz Festival on Saturday, August 6, 2011.
