This week's show begins with a tribute to Gil Scott-Heron, who sadly passed away yesterday. Gil was an innovator. His contribution to jazz came with the fusion of his music, spoken word and poetry. He is credited as having a major influence on the Hip-Hop genre. Perhaps the most famous of his writings The Revolution Will Not Be Televised is included in this podcast. Following that set we feature Steve Davis, Greg Abate and others.
