This show was 1st in the global radioshow chart, 1st in the global community radio chart and 11th in the global jazz chart.
After a funky start from drummer Mike Clark (of Headhunters fame), we celebrate the 50th anniversaries of 4 great Blue Note recordings from Jackie McLean, Wayne Shorter, Lee Morgan & Tony Williams. We have our 2nd installment of our chronological Horace Silver celebration with a track from an old Lou Donaldson session and 2 Silver trio tracks; and a salute to tenor saxophonist and teacher George Coleman upon his receipt of a 2014 NEA Jazz Masters Award. Sprinkled in, we have selections from legendary trumpeter Booker Little, swing from Ben Webster & the Terry Gibbs Big Band, and a hard-bop classic reconfigured by guitarist Bill Frisell. Enjoy the show, tell your friends, & keep the music strong.
