Drummer/multi-percussionist Babatunde Lea stopped by towards the end of the show to talk about his music, his show at the AQ and his background and inspirations. I also played music from Jimmy Smith, Lou Rawls, Hank Mobley, and Dizzy Gillespie, and Leon Thomas. New music included songs from Russ Nolan, Lee Smith, Kevin Mahagonny, Larry McDonough & Richard Terrill, and Butch Thompson & Pat Donahue. The 45 of the Week was from a Coleman Hawkins EP.
