May 25: Memorial Day in America

May 25: Memorial Day in America

Playing tracks by

Nicki Parrott, Nellie McKay, Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Torme/George Shearing, Mel Torme and more.

Chart positions

This show was 3rd in the global jazz chart.

It’s time for Memorial Day in America, the unofficial start of summer. So, as John always reminds us, it’s time to start wearing the linnen. It’s a weekend for parades, cookouts, Indy cars, and baseball, as John & Jessica call a few hits on the radio. Mel Torme hits for a triple; Frank Sinatra, Harry Connick, and Ray Anthony all get doubles; and John Pizzarelli comes up with three singles.
