  • “It has never been explained how the body came to be in the desert nor how or why its neck was broken. That the body belonged to Wardell Gray, one of jazz’s best West Coast bop tenor players and heir apparent to the legacy of Lester Young, was of no consequence to the authorities.” [The Mysterious Death of a Tenor Man – Wardell Gray and the Moulin Rouge, Groove Notes Blog]

  • NEW RELEASE “The 70-year-old Argentinean pianist and composer Carlos Franzetti delights in mixing things up. Over four-plus decades he’s recorded symphonic (most recently, 2017’s Luminosa and 2018’s Buenos Aires Noir) and solo projects; composed film music and conducted, arranged and orchestrated others’ works (Paquito D’Rivera, Steve Kuhn, Ruben Blades); slipped seamlessly between jazz, tango, and classical music; and sung standards. Nothing seems to be out of his reach.”

  • “Franzetti displays something of a split personality on Ricordare. His ballads are warm, inviting blankets, rolling easily and seductively; his uptempo numbers breathe fire” [Carlos Franzetti: Ricordare (Sunnyside), Jeff Tamarkin, Jazz Times]

0:53 AM Pamela Hines Trio “Sleepy Time Gal” — The Music Of Richard Whiting

  • NEW RELEASE “The first thirty seconds of a listening experience sets the tone. The disc spins, and music emerges. It's Richard Whiting's "Sleepy Time Gal." And it just might be the loveliest thing pianist Pamela Hines has ever recorded, languid and syrupy, with the trio that includes bassist John Lockwood and drummer Miki Matsuki. Her trio mates are as locked into the tune's concept—and Hines' concept—as they can be. “

  • “The Music of Richard Whiting is Hines' album-long tribute to the Great American Songbook master whose Broadway film scoring career happened in the 1920s and 30s.“

  • “What they do undertake are reinventions of eight of Whitings' finest works, with re-harmonizations and modern chord voicings, and a deep affection for the melodies. “ [Pamela Hines Trio: The Music Of Richard Whiting, Dan McClenaghan, All About Jazz]


Hour 2

  • “...a virtual concert of songs that cover the gamut of standards, some familiar, and some less often heard. It's just a great album that you will listen to over and over again. “ [Deborah Brown: Kansas City Here I Come, Victor L. Schermer, All About Jazz]


1:11 AM Greg Fishman Quintet “One for Hank” — So You Say

  • Tenor Saxophonist in the front line at “The Prez Conference - Tribute To Lester Young” Jazz Live on Tuesday Night!

  • “A product of Long Island, Farber grew up listening to Art Blakey and Miles Davis. He began attending jazz workshops at the age of 10 and developed into a multifaceted woodwinds player. Big band music has evolved over the decades, but this package recaptures the spirit of bands led by Basie, Duke Ellington and others during the 1930s and '40s.” [Andy Farber And His Orchestra: This Could Be The Start Of Something Big, Woodrow Wilkins, All About Jazz]

  • “The gritty loose funk is an undeniably catchy blend that punches above its small ensemble weight. The results of blending 11 of Alberta’s finest musicians creates a true 50/50 collaboration of talent and skill, proving we can come together to focus on what’s important; the music.” [Jim Brenan 11 (feat. Chris Andrew) - 50/50, Republic of Jazz]


BREAK: Jazz and Blues Birthdays and On This Day Milestones, February 13 through February 19

  • “An important force as a bandleader in Los Angeles, Les Hite (who never became famous beyond musician circles) led a series of significant (if sparsely documented) orchestras in the 1930s and '40s. After studying at the University of Illinois and playing saxophone in a family band, Hite worked with Detroit Shannon and toured with the Helen Dewey Show. When the revue fell apart unexpectedly in Los Angeles, Hite settled in the city. He worked for the Spikes Brothers' Orchestra, Mutt Carey, Curtis Mosby, and Paul Howard's Quality Serenaders among others. In 1930 he took over Paul Howard's band and it became Sebastian's Cotton Club Orchestra, soon becoming a fixture at L.A.'s Cotton Club for years.” [Les Hite, Artist Biography by Scott Yanow, AllMusic.com]

Inspired by the musical life of America’s iconic writer Ralph Ellison, presented in music, words, and images.

On his second Verve release, Payton interprets and modernizes ten songs associated with his hometown and/or Louis Armstrong.”  https://www.allmusic.com/album/gumbo-nouveau-mw0000183253

    • In 1941, Woody Herman records his theme "Blue Flame".

    • The first use of the word “Jazz” in print in 1913.

      • “The origin of the word jazz is one of the most sought-after word origins in modern American English. The word's intrinsic interest – the American Dialect Society named it the Word of the Twentieth Century – has resulted in considerable research and its history is well documented. "Jazz" began as a West Coast slang term around 1912. The meaning varied but it did not initially refer to music. Jazz came to mean jazz music in Chicago around 1915.” [Jazz (word), Wikipedia]
