PLAYLIST FOR “EITHER/OR” (11.21.15) #jazz #jazzradio #jazzsingers

22 Nov

Each week when I’m putting together a show, I have to decide between so many choices – either a new singer or a classic one; either a familiar song or something more recent; and, most important of all, either libel or slander.  This week I decided to let the singers wrestle with their own Either/Or decisions. Why should I have to do all the work?
