The legend of the jazz drum kit and a survivor Ralph Peterson opens this week's episode of Neon Jazz, along with a few of his mentors, Art Blakey and Walter Davis Jr.. From there, we throttle into a new crop of tunes from some great jazz cats like James Suggs, Greg Murphy and Hilary Gardner. Then, we dig the unique sounds of Chicago-strong Joe Policastro with his Trio on a new cut from his CD Nothing Belongs Here. Then, we wrap the hour up with The Duke and Something Blue to keep your jazz fresh and fluid.
