The Michael/Christian Garrick version of 'Here, There and Everywhere' had my fillings aching. Not sure if it was the over-Romantic arrangement or the violin! Could have chosen a more representative tribute.

Loved the Dolphy at the end - Music Matador - though it sounded more like a Rollinsesque calypso rather than anything Spanish.

Jazz Record Requests from BBC Radio 3

As so often, a really interesting playlist: Gordon Beck at Appleby, Stephane Grappelli with Phil Woods (how close violin and alto can be!), the heart of jazz with Basie, Sweets, Lockjaw and Zoot, and that favourite from my youth, "Slim's Jam".

If you listened very closely you could hear me clapping in the distance! Was it really 6 years ago!

Nice programme again.

As Pee Wee Marquette said, "That's my hands you can hear clappin' on that record!" :lol:

That was a pretty nice program that KC hosted, with guest Abram Wilson. The musical selections were very good and anybody listening would leave it totally gob-smacked at just how brilliant a player Clifford Brown was. Still nobody has approached his level of hard bop trumpet playing, nearly 50 years after his passing.

Good to hear early playing by Harold Land too. Very under-rated in that era IMO - although he got a few more plaudits later.

KC for Prime Minister :D

Moi Aussi.

That Django 'Undecided' is an all-time favourite. The vocal line sounds like it's slipping around on top of the main music.

Very nice bossa 'Love For Sale' from Dexter Gordon just played.

I think this week's choice track for me was the Bill Evans. I don't have that version of "Comrade Conrad" in my collection.

Just finished Jazz Record Requests.

Particularly liked the 1940 Charlie Christian/Goodman/Basie track. It's years since I heard those sides. Should be in my collection!

Now listening to Something Inside of Me ("bringing you electric and acoustic blues") from WKCR.

Now playing: Tampa Red.

Rectified that by buying the CBS album Charlie Christian, Genius of Electric Guitar used from Zoverstocks for 58p!! I shall miss my Guernsey friends when they get closed down in April! :(

Now listening to Shorty Rogers discs and archive interview on Jazz Library from BBC Radio 3.

I'm there too, Bill. Full hour, on at the right time! Though I suspect a wipe out when Radio 3 does its 'everyone wants to listen to Schubert for 24 hours a day' adventure in a few weeks.

I often fantasise of seizing the BBC for a week and playing 7 days of non-stop Ellington, Coltrane or Anthony Braxton.
