This show was 1st in the global community radio chart, 11th in the global radioshow chart and 18th in the global jazz chart.
Time for 50th anniversary celebrations of classic Blue Notes from May, 1965 by: Pete La Roca, Dexter Gordon & Sam Rivers. We’ve also got piano music from Teddy Wilson, Bud Powell (working out on the same tune), Orrin Evans, and Kenny Barron (with Stan Getz). We celebrate Billy Strayhorn’s 100th with selections from Barney Bigard & Catherine Russell. And throw in some Alex Garnett (from his new one), Elvin Jones (from Heavy Sounds), and Lady Day for good measure. Enjoy the show while I grade student final exams….
