This show was 1st in the global community radio chart, 3rd in the global radioshow chart and 11th in the global jazz chart.
It’s June and time to celebrate 50th anniversaries of Blue Note recordings from June of 1964: The Way I Feel (John Patton), In Memory Of (Stanley Turrentine), Solid (Grant Green), One Flight Up (Dexter Gordon), Andrew! (Andrew Hill), and Empyrean Isles (Herbie Hancock). Whew, Alfred & Rudy were busy. All are fine recordings and some are classics. Along the way, we also had time for some Pat Martino, Yusef Lateef, Jessica Williams, Monk, Ed Thigpen’s trio and Etta Jones. We’ve got a compare & contrast on George Russell’s Ezz-thetic: along with the composer’s take, we have versions from Max Roach & Grant Green. Enjoy the show; keep the music strong.
