From a modern legend and artist of many talents, we begin the 820th Episode of Neon Jazz with Sammy Figueroa and music from am album that honors his late father, Searching for a Memory. We follow that with another legend and a man that gave Sammy his start in Herbie Mann. We also dip into music from some modern master including Olivia Maisel, Aaron Diehl, Miki Yamanaka and George Benson. Finally, we finish off a flush hour of jazz with drummer Mike Clark and music fromKosen Rufu. Dig the jazz, my friends.
