Steve Kenny came by to talk about the Twin Cities Jazz Sampler, an excellent compilation of Twin Cities Jazz. I also played a lot of seasonal music, including cuts by Jimmy McGriff, Tonic, Iving Mayfield, Karrin Allyson, Louis Armstrong, Carla Bley, and Tia Fuller. The 45 of the week was a two-fer: I Want You for Christmas, by Julie London, followed by If I Were A Bell, Part 2, by the Miles Davis Quintet. Closed with a shortened I'll be Home for Christmas, by bull Moose Jackson.
