Playing tracks by

Roland Kirk, Alvin Queen, 4-Sight, Jorge Sylvester, Bennie Wallace and more.

Hope you enjoyed last week’s BN blowout. This week we have more Horace Silver, as a sideman with Lou Donaldson, Sonny Stitt’s big band, and the rarely heard Howard McGhee (HG, Vol 2) on BN, along with a salute to Charles Lloyd on his receipt of an NEA Jazz Masters Award this year. We’ve also got grease from Alvin Queen, the criminally under-recorded altoist Jorge Sylvester, Bennie Wallace, & Art Farmer/Jim Hall; a compare & contrast between Herbie Nichols & Archie Shepp; Billie Holiday; another free association quiz for you serious jazzers (including an exquisite track from trumpeter Avishai Cohen); and finish off with a Disney classic rendered by vocalist Ann Burton. You keep the music strong, and I thank you for your support!

The Soul Preacher

Five stars for "Sancho Panza". What a sound! Who was Don Quijote again? :)

From Wikipedia: "a Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. It follows the adventures of Alonso Quixano, an hidalgo who reads so many chivalric novels that he decides to set out to revive chivalry, under the name Don Quixote." Sancho Panza was DQ's sidekick.

The Soul Preacher

Oh yes, sorry I gotten you into research. I was aware of the novel and meant that DQ probably was envious about his adjunct having a song instead of him. :)

Sorry .. Doc for the late reply .. But I after finished listening to your . I heading over to the The lemon Circus act , followed by Jamie's jolly jukebox .. I am only now seeing the message; From the an audio perspective very nice recording component on the trumpet track and of the over all sound : Regarding the technicality..very impressive : I was honing in on murmuring or stifling tones on the notes in the opening section and intervals throughout; I liked the spitting control in his embouchure very early in the initial stages and the growling touch at the end : I liked as well the density at those points where the energy was need . and the space given to allow the listener thoughts to interject.

Thanks for your insight. I am very fond of that track and was curious how you heard it from a professional point of view. Cheers, DrJ

Thanks, my friend. But I have a question for you: As a trumpet player, what did you think of that trio version of Art Deco?

Nice to see some “Challenging” tracks in the mix. Keeping your listeners on their toes. That’s what it’s all about!

Glad you enjoyed these. Programming those tracks is a bit tricky; you want people to listen (cause it's good), but you can push most listeners only so far. The show is designed as a hybrid: a gateway to quality jazz, but one that is 'hip' enough and interesting for the serious fan. As always, when YOU are happy with the show, I know I've got the sound where I want it to be. Thanks..

The Lemon Circus

Another fine stroll through the genre of heady night clubs from a by-gone era (or at the least nothing my culture has ever captured) Ittapana - very fine, lady sings the blues - the irony there was no lady singing the blues (or the song my lady sings), but Billie Holiday made up for that in true style. love song to a baby was delicious - and I appreciated the lullaby piano playing too indeed for a baby, or a 40 year old. But I think the last track seems to have me in mind again this week with just simply a perfect track :) Great show Dr J - I'm giving you the thumbs UP!!!
