This week we open with famed radio host and pianist Dick Conte with a selection off his new album Blue in Green from there, we traverse his jazz life with stories and cuts from Benny Goodman and Miles Davis. We also get into some Kansas City root with another radio host, and drummer, Sam Wisman and link him to some tasty tracks from Kerry Strayer and Lester Young. Finally, we hear from the Yellowjackets in light of a late January 2019 show in Kansas City and honor the life of the great Michel Legrand who we lost in late January.
