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.
