Lots of features this week. Tenorist Brad Walker kicks off the Fall jazz concert season in Baton Rouge on Friday, October 4 @ Chorum Hall and we preview his new session recorded live at Snug Harbor in New Orleans. Another centennial segment celebrates pianist Herbie Nichols; more Sonny Rollins with Miles; and Bobby McFerrin who was appointed a NEA Jazz Master for 2020. Along the way Dave Zinno's latest, grease from Leon Spencer, a message from Betty Carter, swing from Django and Sarah Vaughan, plus Dave Brubeck plays the blues...really! Don't worry, be happygroovin' to Gifts & Messages, of course. Listener favorites next week....
