Trombonist Fred Wesley called in for a brief inteview towards the end of the show, which included music from Jack McDuff jimmy Forrest, Milt Jackson, Jazz at the Philharmonic, Eliane Elias, Jim Snidero, Hank Crawford, a smokin’ sax quartet, Johnny Harman, Charles Mingus, and more….
9/22 in a nutshell…
This week in GotchaSKAvered land, Lynval Golding was Wondering Now, but not with his usual band The Specials… he was guesting on Skanic’s Spare Shells tribute track. Spare Shells was a fine Australian comp in which bands from around the world played Specials tunes (and older tunes The Specials made famous all over again). Ship’s Library was the theme of the 4@4… we didn’t actually have to bring any of it; it was already there! Sherwood B. Funn had vibraphones on the brain (always Funn to be had when Sherwood goes that route) and in the Ooh, Kentrick Patrick was the recipient of some Evening News, Millie loved Willie and Owen Gray Mashed It! …just not in that order.
A mixed bag today, with a lot of older tunes, including music by Reuben Wilson, Illinois Jacquet, Vince Guaraldi, Don Byas, Gillespie Parker, Art Blakey, and more. New music from Chip White and Mark Winkler.
