Alrighty then. It's the first week of a new month. Our regulars know it's time for Blue Note 50th anniversary salutes. We've got three for you from Duke Pearson and the big band, Detroit pianist Kenny Cox, and Jack Wilson. Continuing a series we started at few months ago, we have BN-4, two sides of a 12-inch 78 from 1939. And then there's our chronological Sonny Rollins celebration with a session with Miles Davis and a handful of 21st century tracks. Enjoy the show!
