Happy New Year! First show of the month and 2020—it's time for Blue Note albums that are celebrating their 50th anniversary, being from January 1970! Lou Donaldson, Grant Green, Lonnie Smith, Andrew Hill and the Thad Jones Mel Lewis Remembered! Bassist and saxophonist Mark Zaleski will be in Baton Rouge at Chorum Hall on Wednesday, January 8th, and we track a tune from his latest recording. It's the start of the Charlie Parker centennial, and we'll be featuring Savoy studio tracks every week (I hope) in his honor. Finally, BN-17 from the Edmond Hall Celeste Quartet with Charlie Christian. Enjoy the show and follow us!
