This show was 1st in the global community radio chart, 3rd in the global radioshow chart and 17th in the global jazz chart.
Time to celebrate this month’s Blue Note 50th anniversaries: Horace Silver’s ‘Song For My Father’, Freddie Roach’s hard-to-find ‘All That’s Good’ and the equally rare ‘Freedom’ from Kenny Burrell. DrJ broke down (finally) and purchased the Wes Montgomery Riverside box and shares a couple of tracks with you. We also go to New Awlins with both classic (Pops & Bechet) and modern players (Evan Christopher & the David Murray Big Band).
Especially, we present an exquisite modern take on Lil Hardin Armstrong’s classic, Two Deuces, from bassist Stephane Furic, which is ESSENTIAL listening. And there’s more; give a listen. Cheers, DrJ
FYI, 80% of the tracks are played here for the 1st time on Mixcloud (including the Burrell & Roach Bluenotes).
