The Soul Preacher

Yardbird Suite by Darmon Meader: It's so funny that someone can hear that the singer is a saxophonist as well. Same phrasing. To quote Wilson Pickett: "Don't fight it, you gotta feel it" :-). Too much goodness to comment track by track ,,,, I think someone could lock me up in your archive. A seven year sentence would be gone by the wave of a hand. Good God almighty! :-)

Amen for Pocketful Of Harlem! During my three days in NYC last September I stayed on Lennox Ave. Two minutes to walk to the Apollo. Yes Sir !!!

Thanks so much. I've been 'locked up' with this stuff since I was 8 years old. Can't think of a better way to spend one's life, which is too short to spend with music of no consequence. Today's instrumentalists would highly benefit from phrasing like a singer. Thinking about it, most of the jazz players that we honor as the greats 'sing' through their instruments. Good gracious! Have a great holiday season, DrJ.

Dr. Jazz - I really loved that version of Boogie On Reggae Woman! Great show, as usual :)

You harmonized my world with the New York Voices. I hit the heart at 27:03 :-) Amazing cover of "So In Love", a magnific song; I used to sing the Ella Fitzgerald’s version. Thanks for introducing me to Kim Nazarian. Also enjoyed very much the Peter Elridge's song, which weaves a little bossa mood into the mix. Wonderful session, Dr Jazz.

Sounds like you're in for a treat with New York Voices (doo-wop meets Jazz would that be fair to say?), and some other great vocals too I heard before spinning their tracks. Mad Heaven was a nice touch to draw the first hour to an end. Salt Peanuts was a roller coaster of instrumentation and themes, emotion and if you held your hands out of the carriage high enough you could feel the breeze of different genres licking the jazz category sliding log flume like into a tribal drum section - brilliant stuff! that session reel of Miles Davis done the same thing - did you hear that? the same thing I tells you up, down, left, right just threw it into the pot and didn't even cook it, just wanted to hear how it sounded. Just random yet you know a lot of thought has gone into it - just like your shows Dr j, nothing is never random ;)

That's an interesting take on the NYVs, but in a sense, you're right. Is G&M mad heaven? Depends on how you define 'mad':) Salt is always fun & that whole recording has continued to be a joy for a very long time. Isn't that Miles amazing? It's like he's struggling to find the groove & then BHAM it all comes together for a timeless solo! Sounds like a G&M show; you don't want to know the creative angst that goes on before (and sometimes during) the show to make it all come together. Thanks for listening. Cheers, DrJ
