Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global community radio chart, 16th in the global radioshow chart and 19th in the global jazz chart.

With a cold in my nose and a song in my heart, here’s this week’s G&M with the Latin bit from Conrad Herwig & Gerald Wilson; swing from Chick Webb, Ella & Basie; the blues from Houston Person; a hugely hip tune from the new Duane Eubanks release; mellow Marty Ehrlich; classic Horace Silver; a few compare & contrasts of various vintages (Spinners/Dave Stryker, Lunceford/Ellington, Horace/Diz); some songs sourced from a pianist named Cole (courtesy of Ray Anderson, Diana Krall & Bob James) and a selection from a forthcoming recording by Nashville (TN) jazz & funk band Dynamo, appearing in Baton Rouge at Happy’s on 3rd (March 17th) and Chelsea’s (March 19th). If my sinuses drain in time, March birthday salutes next week. Keep the music strong. Cheers, DrJ

The Soul Preacher

Dizzy's rendition of "Doodlin’" is so funny. I had it on a compilation, but didn't hear his spoken intro until now. The baritone player really has a good sense of humor and so does Dizzy and the entire band. Also always loved "Room 608" and am glad the record made the cover. Further more I have a very nice rendition of that tune by Don Patterson. Recorded in 1977 on his album "Movin' Up". And finally it's good to hear Houston Person on a tune that I only knew by Georgie Fame until today. Person's album "Broken Windows, Empty Hallways" from 1972 is a frequently played record in my not broken and not empty home. Thanks!

Yeh, that Diz track is really a lot of fun. Glad you enjoyed the show. I'd forgotten about the Patterson version and need to dig that out for later this year. Person is 'all day' music; an easily recognized sound (and his licks), but like a favorite easy chair. 'Comfort' jazz. Thanks for listening. Cheers, DrJ

The Lemon Circus

blues - trumpets - Quiet to loud and back again - sassy and brassy loved the spinners tune - and once I made my mind up it was fantastic, that sealed the deal before you even played the other contrast track - now that is narrow minded :D actually the section of compare & contrast is good fun and they are interesting to see how artist can have an entire different take on the same composition. No other Dr Jazz out there to compare yourself too - so just keep being you and hope that cold clears up (never troubled you on your presenting) I'd have blown my nose live on air, helps narrate my story, build sympathy and gives a lower tone to the proceedings - and that is why you never :)

Glad you enjoy our C&Cs; that's exactly why we play them. They give you insight into the creative process if you listen closely (as you do) or they're simply fun if not. Listening to music should be a pleasure and not work, as I see it, especially on Saturday afternoons when the show runs. Longer songs in jazz give us 'nose blowing time' off the air:) A cold does emphasis the low end of our vocal range, which appeals to Lady J! Cheers, and see ya Wednesday night. DrJ

Ah! Blue Bossa I love that tune. Not so sure about Conrad Herwig’s take! Felt the melody got a little lost! Was Joe Lovano on that? Met Joe one time, seemed a thoroughly nice chap. Showed me his hand-carved “wooden” mouthpiece. Don’t know if he still used that? Hope the ailment clears up soon. As usual a great selection of music. Just what the doctor ordered!

Joe lays out on that tune and one other. He's featured on the other tracks. He's been through BR twice in the last few years with his own band and with McCoy. He is a nice guy (we share some Cleveland roots). Cold is gone, thankfully; kept me at half-power for 5 days. Thanks for asking and listening. Cheers, DrJ

Nice point breaking the line with The Spinners!

Indeed. We've been doing these pop vs. jazz versions as a continuing feature when the mood & tune strike us.
