From a big name in the world of Canadian jazz, we go up north to begin episode 613 with the great PJ Perry presenting material off his new album The Quiet Room. From there, we pay respects to the great Charlie Parker in Kansas City during the Bird Celebration during August for what would have been his 99th year on earth. We hear from the past and present cats to celebrate his honor and those in the world of Kansas City jazz. From there, we hear some fresh new sounds from Kiefer and Victor Gould. In honor of 9/11, we wrap it all up with the master Sonny Rollins.
