This Week & Beyond at Thursday Night Swingin':

2/21/13 Shannon Powell - drummer/vocalist
The virtuoso drummer, affectionately known as "the king of Treme," played at Preservation Hall and with Danny Barker and His Original Jazz Hounds before he was a teenager. He toured with Harry Connick Jr. from 1987-1992, and has performed with Diana Krall, Dr. John, John Scofield, Marcus Roberts, and many others.

2/28/13 Herlin Riley - master drummer
One of the most sought after drummers in the world, Riley was a member of Ahmad Jamal's group in the 1980s, and is a regularly featured musician at Jazz at Lincoln Center, under the helm of Wynton Marsalis. New Yorkers are still raving about his recent performance with pianist and Kennedy Center's Artistic Advisor for Jazz Jason Moran at the 2012 Blue Note (Club) Jazz Festival.
