Two of my favorite standards are covered here. Dig vocal and instrumental covers of Trane's Moment Notice, then Miles' So What. Following that is a jazz voyage with Hancock and Pharoah. Then we pay tribute to the victims and families of the Parkland shootings with music from Rob Garcia, Noah Baerman and Noah Preminger. The podcast concludes with Ellington's Jeep Blues.

My annual podcast honoring Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, with jazz music. This year it takes on even more importance following the racism displayed by the man in the White House. Perhaps some good can come from this incident by awakening the good people of this country to stand up and resist racism and injustice in our society with non-violence as Dr. King would have wanted.

This podcast was recorded the day after Thanksgiving. We begin with music inspired by this, my favorite holiday. Since Thanksgiving is centered around eating food, we will begin with Arthur Blythe's Stuffy Turkey. Then we "Give Thanks" with saxophonist Jimmy Greene, and partake of some Soul Food with Cyrus Chestnut and Atla DeChamplain. Lots more music follows.

John Coltrane is certainly one of the most influential and revered Jazz Masters. Broadcast on 'Trane's 90th birth anniversary, this podcast contains music from both of his great quartets. Other than a couple of tracks that cover Coltrane tunes (Pharoah Sanders, Kenny Garrett) this podcast is all Trane.
