Just happened to miss this one until now, Dr.J! Great stuff! Joshua is tthe director this season for the Paradise Jazz Series scheduling artists and playing several concerts for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra here. In the past we've had the pleasure of Christian McBride, Terrence Blanchard, and Diane Reeves as directors. Another thing I will miss about Detroit when I move to TX. Thank God for your show!

Our pleasure, Doc. You'll find some decent jazz down this way in Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio, although we're not as plugged into the touring circuit for most jazz artists. Up North, if you feel like hearing good jazz on any given night, you can usually find it. Down here, you have to set aside the dates when people are coming through. There is the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, but it's more heritage than jazz. Good music of all sorts, though, but getting VERY expensive to attend.......Cheers, DrJ

Fantastic. Especially Joshua Redman, Thad Jones/Mel Lewis, Art Blakey on the Sonny Rollins classic and the closing tune by Hank Mobley made it an exciting adventure for me.

Thanks. Glad you enjoyed the show. FYI though, the Blakey tracks were composed by Charlie Parker. Cheers, DrJ

Thanks. You know what Lester Young used to say, "Good musicians borrow, and great musicians steal." Same goes for jazz DJs, evidently. Wait till you get to the last set with trumpet work from DByrd and Maalouf. Cheers, DrJ

It's a dramatic reworking of the original arrangement on his 'Takin Off' BN record...Thanks for listening. Cheers, DrJ

Aaaargh! I typed loads of comment then my PC restarted due to some software needing a reboot for it to work - and before I could dismiss it - the process of a reboot took place and thus - lost notes - but if I remember I had strong criticism to the last 30 seconds of Herbie's tune which just started to annoy me - think the produced would have faded it out rather than allow it to repeat over and over (like most of these dance tunes uploaded onto mixcloud - don't musicians realize people with intelligence don't want a looped note - hope no dance DJ reads my post ;) Everything else was smooth and enjoyable Tow Away Zone - had the sparks of great energy, what is this thing called love - had one of those titles that nailed the feeling, Now's the time - elegant daydreaming music, and the Home theme was splendid - heard the rush and urgency to get there in each track with a well planned route back to the Bayou :D

Shame, shame. As a computer geek, you should SYW :) You can turn off that auto-reboot on the machines I know about. Anyway, glad you enjoyed the show except for HH's Watermelon fadeout. We're always tempted to talk over that, for obvious reasons. Didn't do it this time. Actually the segue INTO that track would have been a bit slicker if I had cut the same business during the start of the tune. Didn't do that either. Glad you got the vibe on the last set; without lyrics, it takes a serious ear like yours to appreciate. Till Wednesday night............DrJ

Terrific! Great tracks, especially like the Thad Jones and Marty Ehrlich.

Both are 'featured artists' in regular rotation on the show. So, you'll hear them 4-6 times a year. Marty is so generally underrated. But, be careful in selecting his music for purchase. He has done some really wild projects that are very different from the track I played for you. Thanks for listening, and I hope you'll join us every week. Best,DrJ
