We have a lot of ground to cover this week. After our starting half-hour of 21st century music, we have a compare/contrast of Charlie Parker versus a Kevin Hays deconstruction of "Scrapple from the Apple."

The day of broadcast on WHYR was Art Tatum's birthday; so we have a rare recording of an airshot from WTAM radio in Cleveland, when Art was 24 years old. We continue our Sonny Rollins celebration with a sideman gig for J.J. Johnson in 1949. We also celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ornette Coleman's Berkeley concert with his 12-year-old son on the drums along with Dewey Redman and Charlie Haden.

But of course, there's more, so give a listen. Inside or out, you'll enjoy the ride. Next week, the doctor 'spins' listener favorites from recent shows.
