The Music of Russell Webster - Part 2
November 12, 2023
This week on Echoes of Indiana Avenue we’ll share the final episode in our two-part series exploring the music of the late Russell Webster – a legendary Indianapolis saxophonist and composer. We’ll be joined by Webster’s daughter Bonita Webster-Coleman and his wife Lexie Webster. We’ll also hear from musicians who were influenced by Russell Webster, including Steve Allee and Justin S. Kinchen.
This episode will focus on Webster’s self-produced 1983 double LP “Uncle Funkenstein”. It features an all-star line-up of Indianapolis jazz musicians — including Larry Ridley, James Spaulding, Pookie Johnson, Mel Rhyne, and Clifford Ratlif.
