We kick off the 851st Episode of Neon Jazz with the brilliance and prowess of pianist Matthew Whitaker and music from his forthcoming album. From there, we get into a host of tunes from the Kandace Springs, Rachel Z, Dave Bass, Queen Esther, Leigh Pilzer and Noah Haidu. Talented singer Hyeonseon Baek makes his debut on Neon Jazz and he is wonderful. Finally, we say goodbye to the great Albert 'Tootie' Heath. Dig the jazz, my friends.
