Blue Note fiftieth anniversaries, as usual, on this first show of the month: Reuben Wilson (A Groovy Situation), McCoy Tyner (Asante) and Jimmy McGriff (Something to Listen to). And there's another James P. Johnson Blue Note single (BN-26) that includes "Caprice Rag" (piano players, pay attention). We've also got 21st century music from the U.K.'s Sarah Tandy, Etienne Charles, Martin Wind and Yosvany Terry with Baptiste Trotignon, as well as classics from Kenny Barron, John Coltrane and Wes Montgomery. Enjoy the show!
