Oh, what a show for you! We start with twenty-first century New-Orleans-centric sounds from Charlie Dennard on the B-3, Billy Martin's Wicked Knee, Binker Golding, and a sexy song from Herlin Riley. We celebrate the life of Sonny Rollins with tracks from his Jazz Contrasts sideman gig with Kenny Dorham. And then there are two really top-shelf classics: Brubeck & Rushing (Dave's centennial year) and Art Tatum at the 88s with altoist Benny Carter. Then the professor goes for a deep dive into Charlie Parker's "Now's the Time" including the pop tune "The Hucklebuck"—a direct rip-off for which Bird got zero royalties, as well as two very different takes from John Lewis and Stanley Clarke. In the gaps, Tomasz Stanko and Peter Bernstein. Enjoy the show!
