Our 2 features this week: quartet tracks from Wayne Shorter's Emanon (the Downbeat Magazine's Critics and Readers Poll best album of the year) and Sonny Rollins' monumental Saxophone Colossus. We've got 21st century music from four bass players and two Chicago trumpeters. And, of course, a waltz through the vaults with Fletcher Henderson, Bessie Smith, Charles Mingus and Jimmy Smith. Enjoy the show, tell your friends and keep the music strong.

Hats off to our most active listeners of the week in Strasbourg (France), Budapest (Hungary), Moscow (Russian Federation) and Baton Rouge (US)
