Ah, Friday the 13th on a Saturday (for all you Pogo fans). Well, no political satire here, just lots of good music. After a greasy start with Yotam, we offer a trio of trumpeters (Farmer, Douglas, Charles) and a catchy number from Adams/Pullen, In part 2, we explore bebop in atypical places (violinist Zach Brock & altoist Greg Osby). Trombones up front in part 3, kicking off with the latest from Steve Turre and Horace Silver as a sideman with JJ Johnson. We celebrate the centennials (Strayhorn & Holiday) with an added dash of Grappelli. And in part 4, we go deep with Rudresh Mahanthappa/Bunky Green, the Maria Schneider ensemble and Miguel Zenon. Thanks for listening, enjoy the show, and tell your friends.......... If I get my act together, June birthdays next week.
