This music in this podcast has nothing to do with our 45th president. It is just a celebration of his leaving of office, and a hope we can someday return to "normalcy".

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.

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.
