Maryann Sullivan came by to talk about and play tracks from her new CD, Coffee Time. I also played new music from Chris Bates’ Red 5, Reggie Quinerly, Maceo Parker, and Bill Cantrell & Axiom. Classic cuts from Jack McDuff, Coleman Hawkins, Gene Krupa, and Dizzy Gillespie. The 45 of the Week: Save Your Love for Me, by Johnny Griffin Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis Quintet on Jazzland Records.
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.
It’s a one week pledge drive, but you can still pledge your support to KFAI and Rhythm and Grooves. Jana Nyberg dropped in to talk about upcoming gigs. I also played music from Johnny Hammond, The Jazz Soul Seven, Art Blakey, Esperanza Spalding, Bill Cantrell & Axiom, Tianna Hall, and Miles Davis. Today’s Single of the Week was I Believe in You, by the Gary McFarland Orchestra, from the early 60s.
