PLAYLIST FOR “BREAKING THE RECORD” (2.28.15) – AN ARCHIVE REPLAY #jazz #jazzradio #jazzsingers

1 Mar

Couldn’t do a live show last night, so I pulled from the Turntable For One archives a program I consider one of my proudest moments (you’ll notice I didn’t solicit anyone else’s opinion about that).  On this show, Turntable For One bravely went where no other radio program has tried to go. (What do they know that I don’t and when will I ever learn?) Nevertheless, throwing caution and good sense to the wind (if not good taste as well), I challenged the record for the most number of songs ever played during a Turntable For One show; and, including references from accompanists, I played 31 songs in one hour, a record I think will stand, especially on a crowded bus. But, you be the judge! Take a look at the playlist. I’d say the music was a Win-Win for me and everyone else.
