Indeed. Miles is on fire for this entire set. Thanks for listening & welcome back. Best, DrJ

The N’Ola segment was interesting to hear. I mean for studying the roots of Jazz. I do understand the meaning of that old Jazz from the 1930’s/40’s much better since I’ve been to Louisiana. My belated Happy Birthday wishes to Robert from Down The Road. My record stop in New Orleans was the "Louisiana Music Factory“. They have a HUGE shelf of artists from New Orleans. And I really do mean HUGE! Phew, that Miles segment was wicked.

Real traditional jazz (New Orleans & Chicago styles) is not only historically interesting, but (done well) is really 'all-day' music. Miles on a good day (as here) was unstoppable! Thanks for listening. Best, DrJ

And wow we end with Shirley Horn, you've iced the birthday cake there Dr J a delicious slice was served - crumbs everywhere but is was very enjoyable who cares about crumbs. My youngest is 10 and I'm going to have a real slice of that heavenly stuff... :) have a great week

We had our cake this weekend, too. The oldest grandson graduated from high school and is off to college in the Fall on a soccer scholarship. Thanks for listening. Best, DrJ

I must synchronise my watch for the birthday show again next year - this is a real treasure . Miles Davis is even celebrating it It's About that time (in reference to your G&M show I presume)

No 'hidden messages' in the song titles this week (but 5/26 show, yes), just BD salutes & grooves. You could play great Miles tracks for weeks without repeating. Cheers, DrJ

The Lemon Circus

Someday Sweetheart - perfect. Sweet Lovin' Man this melodic enchanting jazz continues... High Society another I'm livign the roaring 20s dream completely unaware of the great depression, bobbed hair, high hemline and drinking with prohibition - man I'm a real flapper. Like Betty Boop :)

I'm a NYC refuge, but for some reason I've always had an affinity for the sounds of New Orleans. Who knew I'd end up down there! Cheers, DrJ

The Lemon Circus

Good opener - was wondering if I should be doing the black Bottom, the bunny hug or Shimmy to soem of this very upbeat jazz - I decided to do the turkey trot on that top banana Papa, won't you dance with me and you kept the vault open for Sing On.
