This week we fired up the locals for the super John Scofield Baton Rouge concert on October 4th; did a Miles Okazaki/Thelonious Monk compare & contrasts with two of Monk's most challenging compositions; played sax-less Trane covers from guitarist Simone Manunza & Jessica Williams solo at the 88s; and spun some 21st century jazz that caught our fancy.

All of that, while Lady J was on the other side of the glass waiting for a slow dance. We could not refuse!

Enjoy the show & tell your friends...
