I promised to play more from that fabulous 1968 Houston Person release this week—so yeh, that's here (Soul Dance, Prestige 7621) with Boogaloo Joe Jones). It's criminally out-of-print, as is our Carmen McRae centennial feature (the classic As Time Goes By on JVC, issued for 'a minute' as an LP on Catalyst in the US many years ago). We almost got a migraine piecing together our Charlie Parker 100th birthday segment with recordings from Nov 26, 1945 (you'll hear why if you listen!). Savoy had a unique way of issuing these sides in the 78 rpm era! Then we could relax with our Sonny Rollins celebration (Volume 2 on Blue Note). Along the way, Bobby Hutcherson, McCoy Tyner, Dizzy Gillespie and gorgeous 21st century music from violinist Gabe Terracciano, Vanessa Rubin, altoist David Bixler and pianist Aaron Goldberg with the YES! Trio. Enjoy the show!
