Once again, I invited Mario Carrington into the studio as a guest DJ. He brought in music by the Crusaders, David Sanborn, Sonny Fortune, Coltrane, Cannonball, Stanley Turrentine, Wayne Shorter, Grover Washington, and Dexter Gordon. I brought in only one selection, by Denver saxophonist Aakash Mittal.
A mixed bag of old, new, vintage vinyl, CDs, and digital files for today’s music. Started with Kenny Burrell and Jimmy Smith, went on to Wayne Shorter, Miles, Gary Burton Quartet, Jeff Berlin, the Illicit Sextet, Nancy Harms, Gerald Wilson, and the Mack Avenue Super Band. Today’s 45 of the week was Fly Me To The Moon, by Sinatra & Count Basie.
A day of vocal music, with special guest Tommy Lieberman on hand to talk about his new CD, Common Denominator. Songs from Kevin Mahoganny, Maurice Jacox, Diana Krall, Anita O’Day, Nochola Miller, Peggy Lee, Ben E King (yes, that Ben E King), Lambert Herndricks, and Ross, Nancy King, Sheila Jordan, King Pleasure, Stacey Kent, and Gregory Porter.
