  1. The first part of a two-part Night Lights show about Detroit jazz with special guest Mark Stryker is now up for online listening: Made In Detroit: Jazz From The Motor City, Part 1 Part 2 to follow in the next few days.
  2. A recent interview I did with Organissimo poster Mark Stryker is up for online listening: Mark Stryker on Profiles Lots of great stuff from Mark about growing up in Bloomington, how he fell in love with jazz, his work as a critic and writer, and more.
  3. Stumbled across a Parkwood label LP by saxophonist George Benson, George Benson Swings & Swings & Swings. Nice stuff, Like Stitt he played tenor and alto and I hear Stitt and Hodges as probably his biggest influences. This fabulous performance is from a year ago when he was 87! More vids on youtube from the same gig, and there are some other LPs on Parkwood and a full album of duets with the much younger pianist, Glenn Tucker, available at CDBaby: I am having trouble copying and pasting but I am sure Mark Stryker can append his newspaper piece about Benson that he shared with me. Anyone know this guy? If you see the Parkwood releases, pounce!
