Wonderfully inventive double album!


As some of my listeners know, I've taken up delivery driving and along with a break from playing jazz gigs. The last few months I've loaded up a flash drive with albums from my collection I feel less familiar with, and or think would make good music for driving. This week we listened to tracks that struck me as being exceptional from these albums, in particular "The Heatin' System" by Jack McDuff, "It's Time" by Jackie McLean and "Amazonas" by Cal Tjader. Thanks to all who tuned in and thank you for stopping by! - Kendo
