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.

Other recommended listening can be found here, here and here.

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.
