I was just listening to Terrence Blanchard’s "A Tale Of God's Will (A Requiem For Katrina)” then I thought, why not take a trip up Highway 10 to Baton Rouge to touch base with Dr Jazz. A worthwhile trip as always.

Well, here we are, and I'm glad you enjoyed the trip. You even got a classic from Blanchard/Harrison to complement your listening session. Always a pleasure to have you with us. Cheers, DrJ

Kasey Kasem RIP forever the voice of Shaggy and the USA chart countdown host I'd watch in South Africa in the 80s. I think you outdid yourself with that opening track from Chick Corea - Just perfection, what a wonderous melody like a nightingale in a summer meadow - another fine show enjoyed the Seeds track (so much going on in there - hey could be your theme tune for your day job :) had to recall this feedback Dr J - shockwave or something stopped working on my PC and the page reloaded :( but not to fret I heard the lot and it was another jazz fest of quality music. Have a tip top week my friend as ever and hope the paper marking has came to an end

Just what we need in the lab...and now HERE'S DrJ, as the band strikes the chord and DrJ boogying in, lab coat flying and sparklers going off :)! I can see it now! Great track, though. I'm already ready for Wednesday night and TLC; I need a chuckle....Wrestling to set up a new PC at the office. Cheers, DrJ
