This week, we salute Blue Note recordings from April, 1969. In addition, we track both sides of Blue Note 8, sides recorded during Blue Note's first day in business in 1939. It's also the 50th anniversary of the Dexter Gordon Tower Of Power/More Power sessions with James Moody. So hit 'play' and enjoy the show.
