Playing tracks by

Roland Kirk, Rusty Bryant, Roswell Rudd/Sheila Jordan, Bennie Wallace., Don Byron and more.

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. Tks in advance.........try this link http://madavor.polldaddy.com/s/jazztimes-readers-poll-2013 or go to their homepage http://jazztimes.com/ Polling ends Dec 2

I defintely dig the Houston Person Late Night Lullaby. If only every hour of my day could feel so care free!

Here's what I do each morning while shaving...I look in the mirror and tell myself, "this day is precious and will never come again. You are NOT going to let ANYONE mess up this day." I work with plenty of people who, by design or just because they are idiots will try to do this. We try to neutralize them before they can act. Try singing that Person line. Maybe it will help! Cheers, DrJ

Thanks DR JAZZ for supplying yet another amazing, pure ,silky smooth show.
once I over came my excitement of seeing some of the infamous ( Bad ass = Good !! in this instance ) names in the world of Jazz ..I settled down and completed the survey which was no easy task as I could have clicked on all of the buttons if they would have allowed me ...hahaha : -) but this is where favoritism is void and true deserving merit take it place..your show included among my selections....Love ya Boss and keep up the magnificent work : -)

The Lemon Circus

Rock-A-Bye Basie such fine piano meets Brass and tap? Body And Soul wonderful flute playing (unless it's another eind instrument- - but I'm going with flute) Good morning kiss and a flower is lovesome just lovely songs :)

The Lemon Circus

Cold Duck Time - great track to start ANY show with - has that real introduction for a superstar such as yourself to grace the stage ;) VOTED for DrJazz (man that was a big survey - many acts of random kindness in my voting, but there was afew I'd heard of thanks to your education each week on MXC) Waltzing In The Sagebrush was strange - in a good way - but sooo different. Just some fien music to accompany me at work on this dark cold morning. Stop the World was like warming up to a roaring fire and you just kept throeing the wood onto the stove... sack of woe, 7 steps, Samba - that's a lot of SSSS's.

I'm rather fond of this show, too, even though it's not the usual rompin' stompin G&M program. Gives you a bit of a taste of what my late night show (Nightsounds with Dr. Jazz) used to sound like. Thanks as always for your ears. Cheers, DrJ
