The first show of the month means it's time for a dive into the Blue Note vault for our monthly celebration of Blue Note 50th anniversaries. Before that, the doctor presents a selection of recent music that caught his ear. As a bonus, you will find Albert Ammons, from the second Blue Note release, which was recorded at the first Blue Note recording session ever in 1939 (the original 78s of Blue Note's first release, from Meade Lux Lewis, are in SHOW 106 on Mixcloud). And we bop out the door with a soul jazz classic. Enjoy the show, and don't forget to write (even though I'm not your mama...).
