PLAYLIST FOR “JAZZ JUKEBOX” (11.17.18)

19 Nov

Saturday afternoon, I sat in for Garrett Stack on his program American Jukebox, rock and pop hits of the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s.  So I thought I’d spend Saturday evening on my show playing jazz versions of pop tunes. I gave the Gershwins, Rogers and Hart, Jerome Kern, Dorothy Fields, etc. the night off.  They didn’t complain, probably for reasons of death.
