December birthdays on G&M! Some big numbers for the living and those who caught the bus. Still with us are pianists Barry Harris at 90 and Bob James at 80. Among those who are with us in sound and memory are trumpeter Chet Baker and valve trombonist Bob Brookmeyer who would have turned 90. We also salute guitarists John Scofield, Jim Hall and Ron Affif; saxophonists Joe Lovano and Grover Washington, Jr.; vocalist Lou Rawls; pianists Ray Bryant, Larry Willis and McCoy Tyner; as well as trumpeter Clark Terry.

Enjoy the show & Happy New Year to all!
