This show was 4th in the global swing chart, 25th in the global funk - soul - jazz chart and 58th in the global jazz chart.
First show of the month means Blue Notes. But there’s only one 50th anniversary celebration: Big John Patton’s Memphis To New York Spirit. Never fear, though, there’s more from BN: the 60th anniversary of Back To The Tracks from saxophonist Tina Brooks; a great new band, Artemis; and classic James P. Johnson from BN-27. Along the way, Fats Waller, Jackie McLean, Bird @ 100, Omer Avital in two different ensembles, AND a Young Rascals compare & contrast with saxophonist Doug Webb (you’ll be amazed at how hip a tune ‘How Can I Be Sure’ is). You will enjoy the show, especially if you actually listen to the whole thing!
