This show was 10th in the global eclectic chart and 36th in the global jazz chart.
Lots of features this week. Tenorist Brad Walker kicks off the Fall jazz concert season in Baton Rouge on Friday, October 4 @ Chorum Hall & we preview his new session recorded live @ Snug Harbor in New Orleans. Another centennial segment celebrates pianist Herbie Nichols; more Sonny Rollins with Miles; and Bobby McFerrin is a NEA Jazz Master for 2020. Along the way Dave Zinno's latest, grease from Leon Spencer, a message from Betty Carter, swing from Django & Sarah Vaughan, and Dave Brubeck plays the blues...really! Don't worry, be happy – groovin' to Gifts & Messages, of course. Listener favorites next week....
