Something Blue – Everlasting – Friday, May 25 at 20:00 UDT

I will be running the show manually this week and it will be my first time so hopefully there will be a minimal amount of glitches. This weeks show is called Everlasting featuring Dave Koz, Charlie Wood, Lee Konitz, Kenny Wheeler, and Sean Jones. So, jazz. It’s all good but I am particularly knocked out by Lee Konitz with the Kenny Wheeler Quartet recorded in 1999 and rereleased in 2016, from the “Olden Times” CD. For more about the show visit the Something Blue website at http://sbblues.com.
