New Podcast Opens Our 3rd Season!

Thank you to all our faithful listeners who have helped make our podcast a big success! This month features two Jazz Orchestras! Featured players include Phil Woods, Ed Callé, Gary Brown and Jason Carder. Larry Coryell & Kenny Drew Jr supply an exquisite duet tribute to Hank Jones, George Grosman pays homage to Sidney Bechet & much more! At the end of the show we pay our own tribute to the late bassist/composer/friend Frank Capek and Gers Yowell, the saxophonist whose story we told in our second episode. Every number is a gem! Thanks for all the shares, likes and for spreading the word. :) Enjoy!!
