Thanksgiving 2020

Let's start off with Coffee and Scones from Walt Weiskopf on tenor. We've also got classic jazz from Elvin, Cyrus and Grant. Luke and Andrew play a country classic in their own style. We represent San Diego with Danny Green and then our Thanksgiving set; Stuffy Turkey, Soul Food and Give Thanks. We finish with a new funk-fusion sound from Israeli guitarist Gilad Hekselman and friends.

Joni’s Favs

This episode was built around an article in Far Out Magazine and their playlist of Joni Mitchell's favorite songs. That article was based on a compilation CD that had been produced for Starbucks and curated by Ms. Mitchell. I've interjected a few of my own favorites, keeping with this theme, as well.

This episode starts with some slow funk, supplied via Redman's Elastic band and trumpeter Takuya Kuroda (with silky vocals from Jose James). Ezra Collective re-imagines Shorters "Footprints". From there lots of new music including solo Potter and vibist Ross. There is more too.

No real theme to this episode, just some music I have been listening to this week. Although I've moved cross country, I still am playing music from our Hartford friends. Heard here are Matt Dwonszyk, Dan Liparini and Tony Davis. Also, I love this version of Herbie's Tell Me a Bedtime Story, from trumpeter Takuya Kuroda. Champian Fulton pays homage to Bird, and George Garzone plays Trane.
