Well, it’s sort of a BN anniversary show with only a Duke Pearson session from June 1968; 6 tunes were attempted, but only 2 made the cut – we’ve got those. But we’ve offer you alto madness (Ken McIntyre/Eric Dolphy, Kenny Garrett, Phil Woods, the new Tia Fuller & Greg Osby); 2 piano compare & contrasts (Fats Waller vs. Earl Hines; Oscar Peterson vs. Herbie Nichols) & 21st century music from Germany’s Web Web, Peter Erskine, David Murray/Aki Takase, Tim Warfied’s new Criss Cross release & Joe Fiedler. Along the way, three classic tracks from the David Murray Octet, Bernie Worrell & Joe Pass.

Enjoy the show, follow us & tell your friends.

R.I.P Lorraine Gordon (owner of the Village Vanguard): 10/15/1922 - 6/9/2018

Thanks to our most active listeners of the week in: Tokyo & Osaka (Japan), Changwon (Republic of Korea), Baton Rouge, Moscow (Russian Federation) & Belgrade (Serbia)

More and better sax, that's what I say:), although we've got trumpet madness in 327. Thanks for listening. Cheers, DrJ

Thanks, Guido. Have a great week. I've got to go into the lab for several days, so I'll need the Lounge to decompress by Thursday night! Best, DrJ

The Lemon Circus

Rockin' Chair was terrific - everything... just foot tapping terrific. I'm giving them equal points on that track - both effortless interpretations. Equally great piano on the Too Close for comfort but I sided with the Herbie Nicols just slowed it down to a simmer ( I guess it depends on your mood at the time of listening) Great show - now I'm listening to the closing track to see if I can hear any Sesame Street influences... was that Big Bird?... Oh trombone!

Glad you enjoyed the keyboard outing. Each pair of pianists had birth years of similar vintage. So it was interesting that the approaches to the two tunes was noticeably different, especially the 2nd one. That was Animal on the last track?:) Best, DrJ

Meetings - pah! The curse of of the office routine :( But I'm back again listening now to Koranne Said, assuming this is another name in the titular role - I'm wondering what she said? I heard you cried last night, could be an answer but too laid back and relaxed almost to care about the response to this. Chilled :)

But maybe that's the connection? Anyway, thanks for listening and your comments. Have a good show later. Cheers, DrJ

The Lemon Circus

Lets cool one - I think they refer to a cat... had some sultry blows of horn and delightful tickling of the piano - cool cats and lazy dogs.... those wind instruments came bellowing on flowers for Albert. Better name than... Malcolm. They don't deserve a theme surely :)

Cat on the keys for 'cool one', indeed. Cheers, DrJ

Another surefire delivery on the welcome mat, loving the Kings of forbidden lands before its eye catches the funk on eleven eleven...

Bham. Right at ya.........

The Soul Preacher

Good show, Doc.
Bernie Worrell really could play outside the P-Funk box. Not too long ago and surprisingly I saw him playing the keys in the movie RICKI AND THE FLASH with Meryl Streep. It was fun to spot him in the band as it was fun to spot the young Chaka Khan being part of the Gospel Choir in the motion picture BLUES BROTHERS. I wonder how many people are aware of that :-)

Indeed, Mr. Worrell could really do it all. I'm not a big movie fan (too much to listen to & read), but I bet I would have missed those IDs. Thanks for listening & have a great week. Cheers, DrJ
