I played about a half dozen songs highlighting the compositions and playing of pianist Bud Powell, including tunes by Art Pepper, Triplicate, Miles Davis, Kenny Clarke, and Dizzy & Bird. Also played music from Charles Kynard, Monk, The Atlantis Quartet, Mark Winkler, and the SF Jazz Collective.
Today I played some interpretations of the music from Kind of Blue, including tracks by Donald Harrison, Suzi Stern, Chet Baker, Gerald Wilson, and Kurt Elling. I also played music from Willis Jackson, Horace Silver, Cal Tjader, and JoAnn Funk, and new tracks from Ben Sidran, Jeff Holmes Quartet, and Lisa Forkish. 45 of the week was The Peeper, by Hank Crawford.
