Episode 769 starts off with vibraphonist Steve Shapiro with new material off his latest album Plan to be Spontaneous. We follow that with a great story acting as a lead into Lee's Summit, MO-native Pat Metheny. The modern tunes continue with Lia Marsh Booth, Dana Fitzsimons and Plinio Fernandes. There is brand new music from Roger Lewis of Dirty Dozen Brass Band fame. All of it comes to a close with some rousing music from the Henry Godfrey Jazz Orchestra. Dig the music, my friends.
