Who took the happiness out? Not Gifts & Messages! This week we celebrate the 50th anniversary for the Blue Note album Mother Ship by Larry Young. Also featured is Blue Note No. 6 from Sidney Bechet and three tracks to start the Art Blakey centennial celebration, including a rare (and powerful) one from Gypsy Folk Tales.

Oczywiście, there's more! Gifts & Messages is the antidote for the Polar Vortex....
