This show was 1st in the global community radio chart, 2nd in the global funky chart, 7th in the global radioshow chart and 14th in the global jazz chart.
Head shakin’ music from Freddie Hubbard, Gordon Goodwin, Herbie Hancock & John Scofield (courtesy of my ‘distinguished’ colleague, Dr. Second Line Funkenstein) – along with trumpeters Sean Jones, Jukka Escola & Marquis Hill (congrats here - he just won this year's 'Monk'competition!); and pianists Lynne Arriale and Marcus Roberts. A bit of smoky sax from Ike Quebec, & a Jazztet classic. Strings (Lots of ‘em! The whole 4th segment) as we celebrate the 65th anniversary of Charlie Parker With Strings; from the Wes Montgomery box (the Fusion session with strings); and a selection from Ben Webster’s ‘Warm Moods’. But there’s more: 3 rarely heard Art Blakey tracks from his Emarcy sessions with Horace Silver on piano and the very obscure Newark (NJ) saxophonist Henry Durant.
