WHYR JAZZ: Gifts & Messages 6/17/2017 Show 275

About the show

Playing tracks by

John Beasley, Ella Fitzgerald/Louis Jordan, Booker Ervin/Don Patterson, Jimmy McGriff, Victor Provost and more.

Chart positions

This upload was 4th in the #blues chart, 17th in the #funk chart and 19th in the #jazz chart.

A program with a ‘number 5’ (275): so it’s time for our 'hits' show of some of our listener (local radio, network affiliates & Mixcloud) favorites (from shows 261-270). Roll up yer pants cause we’ll be knee deep in the blues & funk for the most part. Enjoy!

Our top listeners of the week reside in Belgrade (Serbia), Moscow & Saratov (Russian Federation) & Baton Rouge. Many thanks for your support!

Picture the scene... head held in shame... not much of a scene but one that should be observed. Even the titles couldn't save me, if I can't remember 'Trinckle Tinkle' I'm a lost cause. I got the vocals but useless with the jazz - oh Donald Byrd I got but only because it was played with Donald Duck last time :) regardless of which I enjoyed the music and surely that's all it's about? Recall not my strong point :) Ask me a question now because next week it'll be a real struggle

Trinkle was from Show 270, during which you were 'hard at work'. Must have really been so! We played 'Duck' & Byrd in the same segment before, but not segued together for 'structural' reasons. So, because they did sound good together, we put them back to back here. Question: 'Who's on first?' :) As Guido says (and rightfully so), 'It's all about the music.' Cheers, DrJ

I remember the Donald Duck track, but the title helped

How a 'grits & gravy' blues gets that title is still a mystery to me. Original LP liner notes were not helpful! Cheers, DrJ

Brazilia was tops I must have missed that on your previous 10 shows glad you gave it another spin here, I do have senior moments so always best to repeat the good stuff :)
