More Jazz Radio

Once again we run the gamut of jazz styles in this podcast. Of note is Joshua Redman with the funky Elastic Band and collaborating with The Bad Plus. Some organ grooves are laid down in CD's led by Joe Magnarelli and Don Braden. Wayne Shorter's rhythm section of Perez, Pattucci and Blade is one of the great creative forces in jazz. That and much more on this week's In The Groove.
