Starting out, a 'physics lesson' courtesy of Seamus Blake, Hank Mobley & Tain! We revive our R&B compare and contrast feature with Ivory Joe Hunter versus Jimmy Smith. Centennials? Of course: Bird and Dave Brubeck (solo)! Along the way, John Patitucci, Bud Powell, Gregory Agid and Anat Cohen, as well as our continuing chronological celebration of the musical life of Sonny Rollins.
