Playlist for 12-5-2017 WFCF - Baubles, Bangles and Beads!

203.04 carat De Beers Millennium Star Diamond

When I was a kid, the back of our world atlas had a guide to all the known precious stones. With some frequency I would sprawl out on the floor, crack that giant tome open and gaze at the dazzling pictures; even occasionally remembering the stone names. Let's just say that video games and home computers hadn't happened yet.

Anyway - I came across a half-finished playlist on my desktop and decided to follow through - hence this week we have the "Baubles, Bangles & Beads" show! Songs about gems and jewelry by the likes of MJQ, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Drew Jr., Stan Kenton, Bill Evans, Wayne Shorter and much more plus a few open slots for new releases. Tune in on Tuesday Dec 5th from 3-7pm eastern (with a break at 5) by clicking here. See you then! - Kendo

Kendo's MP3 Deal of the Week:
Hampton Hawes "All Night Sessions 1"
5 cuts for under 5 bucks and free to stream if you're already a prime member. Hampton in his hard bop prime with Jim Hall's guitar evening the keel. Solid.

Kendo's MP3 Deal of the Week II:
Junior Cook - "Something's Cooking"
None of the cds aired this week had an extraordinary deal, so here's an even better mp3 deal - this contains two albums and 12 tracks and about 70 minutes of high quality jazz at a nice price. "Good Cookin'" has Slide Hampton arrangements (and on trombone) and the great Bill Hardman on trumpet! "Somethin's Cookin'" features Cedar Walton on piano, a great version of Cedar's "Fiesta Espanol", Buster Williams on bass and a very enthused Junior on sax - my favorite cut is the lengthy track I played tonight "Illusion of Grandeur".
