Chart positions

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.

Physical and Mental effort : If anyone is to become Great at anything . You've got to put in the work : Thanks for always giving us such a high level of effort !! Solid & wild vibes today DOC : )

You bet. What's the number that kicks around? Something like 10,000 hours of effort to attain mastery? So, a bit of 'back of the envelope' calculations...at 1 4-hour show/week, it would take a person almost 50 years to accumulate that amount of 'airtime'. And I'm not there yet! (but almost) And I still have a LOT of work to do to get to the level I want to be at.

Thanks for listening, but it gets even a bit wilder next week! Must be something in the air (ha ha). Cheers, DrJ
