About the show

Playing tracks by

Jimmy Smith, Ramsey Lewis Trio, Billie Holiday, Brook Benton, Jack McDuff and more.

from The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language:
The usage of cool as a general positive epithet or interjection has been part and parcel of English slang since World War II. Originally this sense is a development from a Black English usage meaning "excellent, superlative," first recorded in written English in the early 1930s. Jazz musicians who used the term are responsible for its popularization during the 1940s.
As a slang word expressing generally positive sentiment, it has stayed current (and cool) far longer than most such words. Slang expressions meaning the same thing as cool, like bully, capital, hot, groovy, hep, crazy, nervous, far-out, rad, and tubular have for the most part not had the staying power or continued universal appeal of cool.

Well, these artists and their songs have got both “staying power” and “continued universal appeal”. Enjoy!
