Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global community radio chart, 1st in the global blues chart, 3rd in the global radioshow chart, 15th in the global downtempo chart and 17th in the global jazz chart.

After some grooves from trumpeter Brian Lynch and grease from Lou Donaldson, we go to various destinations with Kenny Barron and Art Farmer; an exploration of Tin Roof Blues from Ray Bryant followed by the 1923 original recording; and hence to the vault with Pops and the Port of Harlem Jazzmen; recent recordings from Catherine Russell [ladies, pay attention:) ], Nathan Haines (thanks DJ2tee!), and Brian Charette; and 2 Trane Prestige classics. In our last segment, we get all snuggly with Clifford Brown, Charles Lloyd, a bona fide classic version of Never Let Me Go from Thomas Chapin on the flute, and the MJQ. Next week: BN 50th anniversary celebrations of July 1964 recordings and more of the Jazz Times top 50 classic tenor recordings.

Thanks so much... I will do some digging to find out if any new Jazz artist have tempered with bringing it into the traditional aspects of jazz

Fantastic Show Doc... I would get so lost in the rabbit holes of these musical rhymes and reasons .. the only thing providing an achor was your voice denoting the realities and my way home : You've given me a few nice new ones for me to dig up on the inernet and download : I have a favor to ask... Do you have in your archive an old jazz a composition of "Me and Mrs Jones" .. It's funny ...for some reason I was hearing a very distance vibe of this song in "Desolation Sound " by Charles LIoyd...Thank you Bossman : )

As always, thanks for listening. The 'hit' version of Me & Mrs was by Billy Paul (I think)(on U Tube). There are a few undistinguished cover versions of this by 'pop' jazz musicians (don't have these). I also keep thinking that Benson, Sanborn or some Hammond B-3 guy did a 'swing' ballad version, but memory fails....Best for the week, DrJ

some all incorporating jazz here with Peepin, they know how to jam with an organ - put the Doors to shame. Fine piano on tin roof blues, always nice to hear Louis Armstrong (I thought the female was Ela Fitzgerald - shows what I know) and strangely I'd heard that Aged and Mellow track already this week ;) Late night TV goes organ crazy too, those two last closing tracks were really relaxing, great show, great presenter :)

Birthday greetings! Have they filled the black balloons in honour of your 40th, yet?:) Ella/Pops were 'one off' sessions, but Velma toured with Louis as part of his working band. When I was putting together this show (sequencing the cuts), I probably spent 90 minutes just listening to Peepin. Every time the track came up, I listened to the whole thing. It's 'routine' grits & gravy, but it grabs you, nonetheless. Cheers, DrJ
