Sometimes in this business, you get so saturated with new music that your ears are paralyzed. The blues to the rescue, including Dexter Gordon singing with his voice, not just the saxophone. We also salute and celebrate Maria Schneider's receipt of a Jazz Masters' Award this spring from the National Endowment for the Arts. The first 2019 segment of our Sonny Rollins retrospective precedes Maria, with the 1951 Dig sessions with Miles. Then we turn reflective at this start of another year. Enjoy the show, tell your friends—G&M, better than chicken soup for what ails you...
