Time for our selected monthly birthday tributes of those still with us and those no longer. Rusty Bryant, Roswell Rudd, Sheila Jordan, Bennie Wallace, Don Byron, Houston Person, Mose Allison, Nat Adderley, Phil Woods and many others. We've got a REALLY rich segment in our last half-hour with Alvin Batiste, Ellis Marsalis, Carmen Lundy & Billy Strayhorn. If you enjoy good music, memorable melodies, you'll enjoy the ride. Happy Thanksgiving to all those celebrating.
Almost forgot. Jazz Times Magazine is conducting their annual Readers' Poll. And :), anyone (even non-subscribers) can vote for their favorite jazz radio program and podcast, as well as favorite jazz musicians and recordings of the year. That's a hint, so to speak. It certainly would be a hoot if some 'backwater' Baton Rouge jazz DJ made their final listing :D.
