Annotated Playlist for Jazz In The Night Wednesday December 26, 2018

Hour 1

0:01 AM KSDS Jazz Orchestra led by Gilbert Castellanos “Christmas Medley: Joy to the World/Away in a Manger/The First Noel/We Wish You A Merry Christmas/Silent Night/Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” — Jazz Live San Diego, Tuesday, December 18, 2018

BREAK (After Tune 1): Hour 1 Intro, Blog Post and Social Media Promo

0:12 AM John Scofield “New Waltzo” — Combo 66

  • BIRTHDAY Wednesday, December 26 - John Scofield [Guitar] 12/26/1951 100 Dayton, OH Dayton, OH

  • 2. John Scofield: Combo 66. The guitar great melds Albert King-styled string-bending and jazzy horn-like phrasing to melodic vehicles on his followup to 2016’s Grammy-winning County for Old Men. With pianist Gerald Clayton, bassist Vicente Archer and Scofield’s longtime drummer Bill Stewart, Combo 66 shifts nimbly from the moody “Combo Theme” to the catchy “Can’t Dance” to the old school swinger “King of Belgium” (for the late harmonica ace Toots Thielemans). “Icons at the Fair” is a jazzy allusion to Paul Simon’s “Scarborough Fair,” while the intimate ballad “I’m Sleeping In” features Scofield at his lyrical best. Another triumph for the revered six-stringer. [The 10 Best Jazz Albums of 2018, Bill Milkowski, Paste]

0:52 AM Cecile McLorin Salvant “Somewhere” — The Window

  • Jazz 88.3 Hosts and Staff 2018 Jazz and Blues Recordings of the Year - Ric Nicastro, host of “Ric’s Jazz Cafe”, Saturday, 7 to 10 am PT : "“Somewhere", by Cecile McLorin Salvant she nails it.” RIC’S SHOW PAGE>

  • “the wise, virtuosic and subtly subversive 29-year-old singer opts for a setting so stark it can almost seem abstract: For the majority of this part-studio, part-live LP, she’s accompanied only by pianist/organist Sullivan Fortner. “

  • “In refusing to pander, either to easy nostalgia or to current trends, she touches on something timeless.” [Review: Cecile McLorin Salvant Transcends Nostalgia on Radically Spare ‘The Window’, Hank Shteamer, Rolling Stone]

Hour 2

1:00 AM Lennie Niehaus “Rick's Tricks” — Lennie Niehaus, Vol. 3: The Octet, Pt. 2

  • BIRTHDAY Wednesday, December 26 - Monty Budwig [Bass] 12/26/1929 100 Bassist Pender, NE 1992

  • “A very valuable bassist who on the West Coast was part of a countless number of recordings sessions, Monty Budwig could always be relied upon to swing a band, take melodic solos and play the perfect note for the right situation while being content to remain in the background. Budwig played bass while in high school, gigged with Vido Musso in 1951 and then spent three years in the Air Force during which he had the opportunity to play in a military band. In 1954 he moved to Los Angeles where he eventually became a fixture in the studios and was greatly in demand for West Coast-style jazz groups. Among Budwig's many musical experiences were playing with Barney Kessel, the Red Norvo Trio (1954-55), Zoot Sims, Woody Herman's Orchestra (1955-56), Shelly Manne, Shorty Rogers, Terry Gibbs, Benny Goodman, Carmen McRae, Bud Shank, Bob Cooper, the Lighthouse All Stars in the 1980's and Ellyn Rucker. Although he appeared on many records (including a few dozen for the Concord label in the 1970's and 80's), Monty Budwig only led one record date of his own, 1978's Dig (for Concord) which included his wife Arlette McCoy on electric piano.” [Monty Budwig, Artist Biography by Scott Yanow]

1:25 AM Bessie Smith “St. Louis Blues” — The Collection

  • ON THIS DAY Wednesday, December 26 - W.C.Handy records his own "St.Louis Blues" in New York City in 1939.

  • “By the time Bessie Smith had the opportunity to put her inimitable stamp on “St. Louis Blues” in 1925, the song had already embarked upon a 30-year journey from when inspiration first struck composer W.C. Handy to the point where it was the most popular and well-known blues song in existence.” [Behind The Song: Bessie Smith, “St. Louis Blues”, Jim Biviglia, American Songwriter]

1:28 AM Keith Jarrett, Gary Peacock, Jack DeJohnette “Bouncin' With Bud” — After The Fall, Disc 2

  • Jazz 88.3 Hosts and Staff 2018 Jazz and Blues Recordings of the Year - Tony McGee, host of “Late Evening Jazz Tuesday”, Tuesday 10 pm to Midnight PT, Show Page> “I couldn’t decide on just one new release.”

    • Corcoran Holt: The Mecca - Raven’s Wing

    • JD Allen: Love Stone - Why Was I Born

    • Renee Rosnes: Beloved of the Sky - Let the Wild Rumpus Start

    • Keith Jarrett trio: After the Fall - Bouncin With Bud

      • Keith Jarrett / Gary Peacock / Jack DeJohnette: After The Fall (, Karl Ackerman): “In the year between ECM releases Tokyo '96 (1997) and Whisper Not (1999), Keith Jarrett's iconic Standards Trio returned to live performances following a two-year break. Jarrett's bout with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome left him physically and emotionally drained, but with the condition in check, his expressive passion and physical enthusiasm return in full force with After The Fall. “

    • Radio bans A.S.C.A.P. music in 1941. Public domain and Broadcast Music Inc. flood the airwaves (B.M.I. was radio's own music publishing venture.)

      • “During a ten-month period lasting from January 1 to October 29, 1941, no music licensed by ASCAP (1,250,000 songs) was broadcast on NBC nor CBS radio stations. Instead, the stations played songs in the public domain, regional music and styles (like rhythm and blues or country) that had been traditionally disdained by ASCAP. And it resulted in a lot of classical compositions being recorded by the big bands. [ASCAP Boycott, Wikipedia]
