The wise veteran New York Pianist Kenny Werner starts this week's show with a cut off his latest CD The Space. We then go into a track that was a huge influence on Kenny's perception and approach to jazz with Miles Davis's "In a Silent Way." We also profile the great band Butcher Brown and a wonderful veteran drummer like Chip White with a track off All Star Ensemble Volume 5.
We continue the hour of jazz with another big influence on Chip with "'Round Midnight" from both Miles Davis and John Coltrane off their Final Tour Bootleg Series released in 2018. We then profile a bit of holiday jazz with bassist Ben Basile and multi-instrumentalist Vince Tampio. And finally, we pay our respects to the unique Nancy Wilson teamed up with Cannonball with a bit of the Happy Talk.
