Art Blakey turns 100 in October. He's too important to have to wait till then. So, we've got 3 more tracks from Bu as well as a 'pre-Bu' segment of tunes associated with or inspired by the great drummer. Our chronological Sonny Rollins celebration continues with a 4tet session with Monk @ the 88s. Along the way: Huntertones in the trees; Jamie Cullum in never never land; Booker Ervin & Ralph Peterson at full throttle; swing from Charlie Christian @ Minton's & Diz & Roy; concluding with wisdom from Dave Frishberg. You will enjoy the show; so hit the button!

Saluting our top listeners of the week in: Strasbourg (France), Gdansk (Poland), Berlin (Germany) & Chicago (US)!

R.I.P. Malcolm John Rebennack aka Dr. John (November 20, 1941—June 6, 2019)
