PLAYLIST FOR “SUMMER LISTENING ASSIGNMENTS” THE SEASON FINALE (6.30.18

30 Jun

I’ll be off the air for July and August, pre-empted by live concerts from Tanglewood. So, once again, as a goodbye treat, I offered listeners music to listen to during the summer which we can discuss when I return in September (I expect complete essays with full bibliographies). I’m sure America will be great again by the time I get back. In truth I just hope we survive to see the Fall.

PLAYLIST FOR “SALUTE TO THE GRAMMYS” (2.6.16) #jazz #jazzsingers #jazzradio #grammys

7 Feb

I gave my salute to the Grammys this week with almost every song and CD either a Grammy nominee or a past Grammy winner…of course I couldn’t resist throwing in a few categories I think the Grammys have overlooked. I also nominated the cover below for album cover of the year and told the audience I’d be posting it. Beautiful CD and beautiful cover. Feel free to discuss.
