This week we kick things off with a slightly Latin set with Roland Kirk, Aymee Nuviola, Tito Puente and Michel Camilo. Then three pieces of silver from Horace Silver move into a birthday tribute set to bassist Wilbur Ware. Coming home from the DC Jazz fest had me listening to DC artists such as Ellington and the Wailin' Mailman Buck Hill, and more.
