On this week's show we pay tribute to our MEMORIAL DAY holiday in a musical sort of way.
We also introduce new releases including the wonderful previously unreleased Duke Ellington -NEW YORK, NEW YORK. Gene Bertoncini has an outstanding new release-CONCERTI. My favorite female jazz small group is Five Play & their new release on Arbors is outstanding.
Kris Gale, Tedd Firth & Harry Allen also have wonderful new recordings.
I continue to be amazed at the high quaility of Japanese women piano players and my newest find is among the best in this long tradition-Chihiro Yamanaka deserves your attention.
We honor the memories of Georgie Auld, Artie Shaw,Miles Davis & Joe Pass.
Enjoy the best of the best.
