WHYR JAZZ: Gifts & Messages 1/6/2018 Show 304

Playing tracks by

Alan Pasqua, Blue Note All-Stars, Mike Stern, Carmen McRae, Booker Ervin and more.

Chart positions

This show was 27th in the global jazz chart.

For our 1st 2018 show, we celebrate the 50th anniversary of 2 Blue Note recordings: Booker Ervin’s ‘The In Between’ & Hank Mobley’s ‘Reach Out’ (with Woody Shaw & George Benson). We also have a brilliant Stephane Grappelli session recorded at Montreux in 1973 – absolutely magical! But first we plug in with Alan Pasqua (with Nels Cline), the latest Blue Note Allstars release & guitarist Mike Stern. Along the way: Carmen McRae, Benny Goodman, Fletcher Henderson, Johnny Hodges, Gregory Porter & Pat Metheny.

Enjoy the show, hit the heart, tell your friends & keep the music strong.

Listener favorites next week.

Salud to our most active listeners of the week in Niigata & Tokyo (Japan), Belgrade (Serbia) & Athens (Greece).

As always I learn so much from your shows and I loose myself in them. Thank you so much and I'll be in touch soon with details of my 'What Is Jazz' series.

Like the Stephan Grappelli. You do know he used to hang out in New Orleans a good bit.

That Grappelli record is very special & I picked it up at a WHYR record sale! Indeed, and with all that time spent he spent in NO, we NEVER had him give a concert in BR! Too late now, but we have the records. Thanks for listening. Cheers, DrJ

Jet fuel-propelled! Still too early here for a taste & I have production work to do anyway! Thanks for your ears. Have a good week. Cheers, DrJ

The Lemon Circus

nice closing track, but thought Pat Methey answered that question (with David Bowie who celebrates his birthday too today) on the 1985 song 'This Is Not America'. Opening was experimental weirdness, loved freedom dance - smooth and quality approved just like we had for Ms Mcrae. Superman and stampede great from the vaults. Stephane Grappelli More was a joy on piano and that violin added gave an entire other dimension. Mr Porter showing they still do good jazz today along with great jazz radio shows :)

Thank you & thanks for listening. Back in action tomorrow, yes? Lots of Holiday stories to share, I expect. Cheers, DrJ

Thanks for turning me on to Booker Erwin's LP (The In Between), most enjoyable! And of course, another jammin show.

Ervin has an instantly recognizable sound that cuts through cleanly. And he had that Texas tenor soulfulness. My favorites by him are 'Hip Calk Walk' with Don Patterson's B3 and 'The Song Book' - both on Prestige. Thanks for listening & have a great week. Cheers, DrJ
