  2. identify these tunes

    After the success of Percy's "Hit the Road Jack" Ray contracted Percy to write for him 20 songs a year for 5 years or so. He also had Percy writing songs for him in later years. The Mayfield songs that Ray recorded for Atlantic preceded that contract.

  20. Is the Detroit Jazz Festival worth the trip?

    I work on the Chicago Jazz Festival, which is also heavily community-centered, and the Detroit fest is our great competition each year. Some people go to both festivals. Chicago has plenty after-fest sets each night in clubs, lofts, concert rooms. Is the Detroit festival completely free to the public, like ours?
