The Cap’n Cozy kick this week’s show off in high, if slightly oops-y style with a tribute to Justin Yap’s Top Deck label, which recorded much classic ska at Coxsone’s legendary Studio 1.
Sherwood stretches out with longies by Bobby Sanabria, The Jaztronauts and Stan Getz, and hour 3’s 4-at-4 tribute to Rob Bucket Hingley (Toasters blow into town @ Triple Rock 10/22!) is followed up by Lollipopper Of The Week Maria Visconti, who re-recorded Millie’s massive hit for the TV series Kroniken, and the soundtrack thereto.
A few songs featuring the bassist Leroy Vinnegar, including tunes from the Jazz Crusaders and Gerald Wilson, as well as new songs from Mark Buselli, Rodney Jones, the Charlie Shoemake/Terry Trotter Quartet, and songs from Jimmy Smith, Jackie McLean, and more…
Inspired by the State Fair appearance of the hugely talented Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, some sounds of New Orleans:

Original Pinstripe Brass Band: Last Chance to Dance (Your Last Chance to Dance; Orleans)
