Time for Blue Note 50th anniversaries from November 1969, with released by Andrew Hill (Passing Ships), Bobby Hutcherson (Now!), Kenny Cox (Multidirection) and a short Duke Pearson session that ended up on I Don't Care Who Knows It. There's also BN-15, a 78 from Meade Lux Lewis. Along the way: 13-year-old Brandon Goldberg on the 88s & tenorist and lawyer Ari Ambrose. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening, especially to our top listeners of last week in: Strasbourg (France), Ginowan (Japan), Washington-DC & Baton Rouge (US), and Budapest (Hungary)!
