From the chops of Boston-based jazz singer Vicki Burns, we begin the 770th Episode of Neon Jazz. From there, we hear from an artist that Burns saw and met in the mighty Ella Fitzgerald. Over the ensuing hour, we hear from some impressive artists with new material in Marilyn Scott, Steve Knight, Kate Wyatt and Joe Policastro. We also spin new music from Kansas City guitarist Jeff Shirley off his album Blue Gold. This episode comes to a rousing close with Henderson's Dance Orchestra circa 1924. The roaring '20s are alive. Dig the jazz, my friends.
