Vocalist Connie Evingson dropped by with young drummer Trevor Haining to talk about Jazz 3G, their Sunday show at the Jungle Theater featuring three generations of jazz musicians. I played music from Jimmy Smith, Herbie Mann, Cal Tjader Stan Getz, a couple of tunes from a new Doug Haining album, as well as something from Vic Dickenson Buck Clayton, and something new from Anthony E. Nelson, Jr. Not to forget Charles Mingus.

And the Mingus Moment.
