We reminisce about the early 1990s, when we were privileged to attend concerts by illustrious jazz instrumentalists and prominent vocalists. The program even includes tracks by two people who have never before been featured on SWINGIN’ DOWN THE LANE and may never appear on the program again — Michael Jackson and Kenny G.
