WHYR Jazz: Gifts & Messages 7/12/2014 Show 123

Playing tracks by

Roland Kirk, Steve Gadd, Dave Holland, Nicole Mitchell Black Earth Ensemble, Pat Metheny and more.

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global community radio chart, 3rd in the global radioshow chart and 20th in the global jazz chart.

Welcome to G&M, especially our many new followers. This week, we try to fight off the darkness with some smokin’ tenor on a couple of standards; play a game triggered by Pat Metheny; immerse ourselves in classic bop from a few masters; a bit of old swing; give a listen to some recent tracks that float our boat and end with a stunning vocal, as well as a brief appearance of Jazz (the cat) in our 2nd hr. Keep the music strong, be sure to write, and nominate your favorite radio shows for the Mixcloud competition. Next week: July jazz birthdays…..

After you recover from Joey and Steve...the rest is all tasty cream. Great stuff Doc. As always. Pure pleasure to hear Coleman, still one of the great jazz intellectuals of our time.

Always a pleasure to have you aboard..I love Coleman's playing and you can identify him sound immediately, but I wish he'd write more tunes with a melody I could remember. Cheers, DrJ

"Life is a song worth singing " was the message / Morals deriving from this weeks' session : Wow... What colorful rapping paper you chose to present it to us : with the Steve Gadd number..Man he's a killer .... At first I thought it was Billy Cobham before checking the track list .. On the compare segment ..Miles Davis got my vote, but that's being extremely bias.. hahaha : ) My ears were tune to the drums on every track for You imitated it ... Even on the Eddie Harris tune " Lover Come To Me " sorry about not surveying his commanding tenor sax ability.. : ) The drum brush stokes on "Lean Baby" by Buck Clayton was artistic.. nICE Papa Joe Jones ! Perfect Show as usual DR JAZZ

Thanks, my friend. Every week, I need the show to remind me that life is a song worth singing. You look at what's going on in the world, and have to wonder about that. Indeed, you can get a new perspective on this music when you focus on the 'supporting' instruments, like drums and bass. What Papa Joe does I'm afraid is becoming a lost art.

The Lemon Circus

Another ground shaking jamboree with Them changes kicking off in fine style. Then comes the slower Black Hole - hey I can see your whole show as a waveform in the play box, and you can clearly see the LOUD sandwiched with the quiet or I suppose uptempo with the downtempo - just an observation. Calvin Keys (the act) Oleo was fine jazz by any other name too. Always ready with a delightful piano tune loved Muscle Shoal Blues 1:40:28 White Noise (or a Blue Note (see what I did??) Gremlin. Circling as I have came to expect a fantastic vocalist to close the show :) On form Dr J

Indeed. Proper pacing of tracks is part of the art, as you know from your own show. It's a bit more complex than simply fast/slow, but if you listen to lots of shows, you'll hear the 'waves go in and out'. White noise indeed...a bit of radio ambience, eh? The BN track plays fine. Glad you enjoyed the show. It's Wednesday, so time for TLC...Cheers,DrJ
