Opening today's show with sounds of Paris — with a bossa nova & a folk swing.  Paris is also known for its links to African nations – so I go to a very recent release from Senegalese mbalax artist, Youssou N'dour.  After an extended set from N'dour I play a brand new release from a French jazz combo covering some American classics.  In recent weeks I have been playing vocalists from North Africa and continue with tracks from Souad Massi's first release; Massi is an Algerian ex-pat living in France.

A Week Away From the Membership Drive

Thanks to Brother Tad for sitting in today, and playing a great selection of tunes from Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, and others. 

Two Peters, a Bobby, a Mike, an Al, a Ray.  Meet a Cheetah, a flock of Bouncing Birds,  a Lost Bull.  Take time out of your busy day to smell the pretty little forest flowers planted along your path. (603)
