This week we return with a "Bitches Brew -Day 2" and a "compare and contrast" between two Wayne Shorter tunes (from Super Nova) versus Miles Davis (from Water Babies). But of course, there's more. We moon over Anita O'Day (a centennial warmup) and go to a hotel with Kenny Clarke keeping time on a phone book for Lennie Tristano and Charlie Parker. We catch up on our features with Blue Note's blues & boogie by Pete Johnson from 1939; classics from Sonny Stitt and Horace Silver; as well as 21st century music from Rosario Bonaccorso, Don Braden, the Deep Blue Organ Trio, the The Heavyweights Brass Band, Eddie Henderson and Norma Winstone. August birthdays next week: Pops, Bird, Prez, and more!

Thanks to our best listeners of the week in Kiev, Athens (Greece), Baton Rouge, Minneapolis and Koln!
