Business as usual Wednesday night after last week's mad collaboration with Tom Casetta.  Got a new one from singers Nicole Wray & Terri Walker on their transcendent new release on Truth & Soul simply called Lady.  Plus, more from Charles Bradley and Nicole Willis' new LPs, sweetness from Kev Beadle's new jazz dance compilation and another from the newest entry in Jazzman's Spiritual Jazz series, this time featuring Grachan Moncur!  And sadly, we'll pay tribute to the recently departed Richie Havens.  Be there, peoples.

Come dig some jazz burners Wednesday night at the Mt.

American jazz trumpeter & music innovator Donald Byrd passed away in early February.  Got a two hour tribute, checking out his inventive early 60's stuff and then focusing on his funky side...even his imprint on hiphop.  See you Wednesday.

Back at it Wednesday night.  Barney Wilen's Moshi remains one of the most elusive LPs from the European scene.  In fact, I've never seen a copy let alone own one!  However, Germany's Sonorama Records just released a mess of unreleased tracks from the French tenorman's personal archives, appropriately named Moshi Too, so let's check out music from the legendary road trip.  Plus, more spirtual jazz from that great new album from Lance Ferguson's Menagerie, Numero's reissue of classic Syl Johnson and some Estonian jazzfunk from Jaan Kuman.
