Today’s program starts with B.B. King and Kenny Burrell playing together…..along with organist Jimmy Smith and a host of other great musicians. Then Emilie-Claire Barlow rhythmically transforms a Donovan tune into …what’s the time signature anyway? More vocals from Mel Torme, Tony Bennett, Diana Krall, Roberta Flack, and Bob Dorough. You just *have* to hear Dorough’s rendition (with bassist Bill Takas) of I’m Beginning to See The Light. Then I throw in some Thelonious Monk and Bill Evans just for good measure.
At the end I play my “Discovering Jazz” theme song from start to finish, but I don’t introduce it. So consider this a contest. The prize? Well, you can be a ‘guest’ talking about any jazz related topic you want, on a 2018 episode of this program. Or I could give you a couple jazz lp’s or cd’s. The question? What is the title and the artist of my theme song with which I end this week’s program?
