If we may be so bold, yesterday’s Sunday Jazz Show was an absolute killer. Three glorious hours of heavy stacks of wax. As usual, we brought in a mountain of vinyl and played everything from Benny Carter to Ornette Coleman. And while we could write about everything we played, here’s a couple highlights with links:
- Sonny Rollins – “Decision” – Volume One (Blue Note Records, 1956) – with Donald Byrd, Wynton Kelly, Gene Ramey & Max Roach
- Charles Mingus – “Devil Woman” – Oh Yeah (Atlantic Records, 1962) – with Booker Ervin, Roland Kirk, Jimmy Knepper, Doug Watkins & Dannie Richmond
- Carsten Meinart Kvartet – “Blues To Someone” & “To You (Susanne)” – To You (Fredricksberg Records, 1968//RE 2015)
- Charlie Parker – “Ah-Leu-Cha” – Memorial (Savoy Records, 1947) – with Miles Davis, John Lewis, Curly Russell & Max Roach.
If you missed the show (why are you even missing the show at this point?) you can see the full playlist here.
We’ll be back next Sunday: 2pm to 7pm CST.
Until then, be excellent to each other.
