Y'all? From Southern France?:) Thanks so much for your support in 2014; we'll keep it running as long as devoted listeners like you are with us! Best regards for a joyous holiday season and a healthy New Year. DrJ

Really miss hearing your Welcome to Gifts and Messages. As usual, another great show. Thanks Dr. Jazz!

If you listen to the show live on Saturdays at whyr.org, we've still got the intro with crashing chords and Rahsaan's cackle. We're experimenting with the Mix archive. Thanks for listening. Cheers, DrJ

The Soul Preacher

A groovy one doctor! You would know it easily catches me on the first of so far three listens. It's a nice battle of Joshua Redman vs Maceo Parker on Larry's "Whatever It Takes", isn't it? Those were the days when Maceo was playin' instead of wearing funny sun glasses and makin’ stupid gimmicks about Ray Charles. Saw Larry Goldings live several times while touring with The JB Horns around 1990. Class sessions! One album of his I recommend in particular -- just in (the unlikely) case you don't know it: "Light Blue" on minor music. The label was named after the founder and my friend Stephan Meyner (pronounced minor). A small german quality label with lots of good productions such as Horace Parlan meets Pee Wee Ellis on "Gentlemen Blue". ... The opening tune by the Pharoah still kicks me around, same for Josh's "Greasy G" -- Damn! "Times Are Getting Tough" ... and ... and ... and

DrJazz

Always a pleasure to have you with us & glad we could provide some bright moments. I've got a number of Minor releases including the Golding one, but didn't know the origin of the label's naming. Stephan has a good ear for what works on a recording. Irene had a real thing goin' on the blues, and she has that one about the dentist who fills her 'cavity'.........whoosh. I've got to play that one for y'all sometime soon. Best for the holiday season. Cheers, DrJ

Oh Yeah Doc: The medicine work !! Marvelous prognosis and good diagnosis : )= Thanks my friend : Hey that song Wisteria by Steve Kuhm..sounded like it contained lines from the song "Our Love is Here To Stay ': Nat king Cole sang it a long with many many others : but I think it's Originally by Gershwin

DrJazz

Thanks, CO! "Our Love" first appeared in a 1938 movie; lyrics by Ira and music by George! Yeh, I hear what you mean about Wisteria; maybe some of the same chord changes? Got to listen more carefully. Have a good week! DrJ
