In the late seventies and early eighties, Susan and Jim Neumann helped keep the be-bop flame burning by starting the boutique Beehive Records label. They featured middle-aged boppers left behind by fusion frenzy who just wanted to record some solid blowing dates—and one semi-forgotten vocalist who made his final great recording for the label... and captured Clint Eastwood's heart doing so. For pop matters, things take a swerve for the jazzy when Mike discusses a live Kurt Elling show in detail. Did it make his dreams come true or not? Listen and find out.
