Playlist for 8-30-2022 WFCF - Good Driving Jazz

 
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.

Cool label from short-lived LA jazz label from 1975-1977


This week we delved into a handful of releases covering a broad range of jazz: the strong compositions and killer line-up on Duke Pearson's "Sweet Honey Bee". the dated swing (complete with accordian) of forgotten jazz guitarist Joe Puma on "Wild Kitten", all but one track of the fantastic compilation "Spring Jazz" from Joel Dorn's 32 Jazz label, a fun pairing of saxes with Sonny Stitt/Red Holloway's "Forecast: Sonny and Red" and finally the Hank Mobley lineup of the Miles Davis Quintet in pristine sound (the vinyl master is so much better than the cd) "In Person: Saturday Night at the Blackhawk Vol 2". Plenty of new jazz also! Thanks for stopping by and to all who tuned in! - Kendo
