The Dr's had his fill of turkeys. So, here's our Thanksgiving weekend show featuring an air shot of Billie Holiday from a 1949 TV show, her tribute to Bessie Smith, and Bessie herself. Also, a compare and contrast Chick Corea vs. Thelonious Monk. We jazz up some Isley Brothers chestnuts. And rare Jackie McLean with son Rene, Danilo Perez, Milt & Wes, Benny Golson (read a great interview with him at the Jazz Wax archive: www.jazzwax.com), grease from Wes Anderson and Don Patterson (rare,vinyl rescue), electric Gil Evans, Greg Osby doing some off-kilter bebop, Grachan Moncur, John Hebert (bassist with Fred Hersch) and Jessica Williams.
Coming soon: A Dr Jazz Christmas as well as a 'get ready for New Year's' jam of some of the funkiest tracks from 2012 G&M shows.
