Playing tracks by
Gregory Porter, Avichai Ornoy, Joe Lovano, Fred Hersch, George Benson and more.
We’re everywhere musically this week: Gregory Porter from his debut release a few years ago (you might have missed that one, before he was large). New music from Avichai Ornoy, Jack DeJohnette (for a wicked compare & contrast with EW&F), & Anat Fort. Classic Joe Lovano with Joshua Redman, Fred Hersch, George Benson, Stan Getz/JJ Johnson & Herbie Nichols. We celebrate Horace Silver (selections from ‘Silver’s Serenade’ with Junior Cook/Blue Mitchell) & spotlight the great bassist/cellist Oscar Pettiford. AND we go deep into the vault for classic Sidney Bechet & Fletcher Henderson. We’ll get some ‘free’ jazz in next week. But for now, that’ll cure what ails you:)!
Keep the music strong, hit the heart & enjoy the show.
Shout-outs to our listeners of the week in Okayama/Fukuoka (Japan), Belgrade (Serbia) & Poughkeepsie (NY)!
