When people move into nursing homes they tend to assume their days of taking vacations are over. Not at the Camden Care Center in Minneapolis where the staff has put vacations back on the calendar. Audio Producer Susan Gray learned from residents and staff there’s benefits to escaping the daily grind at any age.
I played classic tracks from Richard “Groove” Holmes, Stanley Turrentine, Miles Davis, the Elvin Jones/Jimmy Garrison Sextet, and others. Newer tunes from the Zacc Harris Quartet, Tierney Sutton, Russ Nolan, Reggie Quinerly, and Connie & Herb. The Single of the week: Stompin’ at the Savoy, from Session at Midnight, a group of musicians recording at the original Capitol Records studios in the late 50s.
