One of my favorite shows of all time- Sunday Night and later Night Music was a music performance program (not unlike the late, lamented Sessions at West 54th) which featured an incredibly diverse assortment of talent that has never been seen before or since on national television. With host David Sanborn and a backing band featuring Hiram Bullock, Omar Hakim, and Philippe Saisse, diversity and unusual combinations of artists was the rule. Where else could you see jazz legend Sonny Rollins backing up Leonard Cohen, or one show featuring the likes of Miles Davis, Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Kronos Quartet? How about Conway Twitty and the Residents? Philip Glass and Debbie Harry? Screamin' Jay Hawkins and Bongwater? I was crushed when the show was cancelled, and I dream that at least a compilation DVD of this show will someday be released, but until then I'll guard my homemade tapes with my life.
