From a legendary guitarist hailing from Kansas City, we begin the 828th Episode of Neon Jazz with live music from Danny Embrey at the Green Lady Lounge followed by rising star vibraphonist Atley King. We spin new music from Claudia Villa, T.K. Blue, Elmar Frey and the Kevin Hays trio, Ben Street and Billy Hart. We also sprinkle in a few classics from Dave Brubeck and Wayne Shorter. Finally, we tie the hour together with previously unreleased music from the legendary Cal Tjader from set of 1960's live shows in Seattle. Dig the jazz, my friends.
