With a healthy dose of reverence, we begin the 778th Episode of Neon Jazz with Brooklyn saxophonist Owen Broder doing his take of "Royal Garden Blues" off his 2022 project Hodges Front and Center Volume 1. From there, we hear from Johnny Hodges himself with the song "Rabbit Pie" followed by the talented Melody Diachun covering Sting. Then, we hear from Sting himself with "A Touch of Jazz." Then it's on to a good dose of new material from Ernesto Cervini, Lauren Falls, Molly Ryan and Ben Freidkin. Finally, we say so long to the master jazz cat Anthony Ortega, who left us at the age of 94. Enjoy the jazz ride, my friends.
