New music from the O'Farrill Bros, Elias Haslanger (from Austin, TX). Classics from Mingus with Book, Dolphy, Lennie Tristano, a Clifford Brown ballad, Charlie Christian, McCoy Tyner, Hank Mobley, sloow.. Miles, Larry Young with Woody & Joe, Jaws/Griff at Minton's & Robert Johnson. Vocals from Cassandra, Woody Herman & Nneena Freelon. Some smooth funk from Russell Malone and raucous funk from Henry Threadgill. Just another afternoon in the stacks with your jazz maven. So enjoy.

If you're looking for something different, check out poppachubby's Sounds of the City for a studied look at the roots of rock (lots of old time swing and blues (you REALLY don't want to miss this outstanding cloudcast!).............. http://i.mixcloud.com/CEydqn

Another great complilation of tracks. Another lesson of how put tracks together making them flow. Always learning with DrJazz. Thanks for sharing.
Ps: I love when you share jazz close to funk.

DrJazz

Thanks for your ears each week. Happy holidays to you and yours. I enjoy the funky tunes, also. But we want to present the full scope of the music to help people to appreciate that it's all good and memorable. Best, DrJ

Happy holidays for you and yours DrJazz. You can be sure you help us to appreciate the meaning of good music. Let me tell you why you are a teacher for me: because you always put the perfect track in the perfect position. That's your main lesson, in my opinion. Thanks again Teacher/DrJazz.

DrJazz

My heartfelt thanks for your comment. As a teacher 'in real life' (at the university), such feedback truly warms my heart. Best regards, DrJ

Super program maestro!

DrJazz

Thanks, i. Didn't have time to mention it during the show, but Nneena did a fine show here in BR a couple of years ago. She's worth seeing live. Best for the holidays and New Year, DrJ

..btw, my mind is being blown by the dizzying McCoy horn work accompanied by that hammering piano--WOW

iCazo

That is so heavy, and I am not knowledgeable enough, to wrap my head/ears around that piece. That's some powerful ___ . Later followed by C Minor Complex--come on Dr.J! You got me against the ropes! Damn.

DrJazz

That's Sonny Fortune on soprano sax with McCoy. He toured with Miles in the 'Agharta' band, as well with Elvin Jones and others. He's the pride of Philly and still 'with us'.
