Jazz

Ted Wilebski joined me today to talk about the grand re-opening of the Blues Saloon on the 25th of November. Bernard Allison and his band will be there for the after Thanksgiving party and Ted stopped by to give away FIVE sets of tickets for the night.

Pianist Mary Louise Knutson came in to talk about her new album, In the Bubble, and her upcom9ing CD release parties. I also played new music from Reuben Wilson, Carmen Lundy, and Pat Mallinger, as well as older tunes from Donald Byrd & Gigi Gryce, and Illinois Jacquet, Russell Malone, and Charlie Parker.
