The first half of this podcast showcases jazz artists' creating music in a post-covid world. In some cases this music was made at home while quarantined away from studios or clubs. The second part is a throwback to another creative era in jazz, the hard-bop of the 1960's.

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.
