This show was 1st in the global swing chart, 21st in the global jazz chart and 24th in the global funk chart.
Who took the happiness out? Not G&M! A Blue Note 50th anniversary for Larry Young’s ‘Mothership’ – just the one this month; Blue Note 6 from Sidney Bechet; & 3 tracks to start the Art Blakey centennial celebration, including a rare (and powerful) one from ‘Gypsy Folk Tales’. Along the way: the Dirty Dozen Brass Band (it IS the start of Mardi Gras season, ya know); 21st century music from trombonist Nick Finzer, organist Brian Charette, pianists Victor Gould & Peter Beets; a couple of Commodore classics from Lady Day; & Hank Mobley with Grant Green. Enjoy the show, hit the heart and keep the music strong.
