Putting a show together, I sometimes amuse myself by posing programmatic 'problems' that help break my usual routines. To wit: we offer you two pairs of disparate covers of Wayne Shorter and Thelonious Monk tunes during the first hour and play word games with tune titles in the second hour.

The 2018 Downbeat Readers' Poll selected the Chick Corea/Steve Gadd collaboration as Album of the Year, and we feature a pair of tracks. And there's more Sonny Rollins with Miles; this time from a 1951 Birdland airshot.

More? Of course! Hit 'play' and 'lesdoodis'!
