Interesting show, including some lesser known (at least by me) Vee Jay jazz albums.

Thanks, Bill--I had to leave a lot of material on the cutting-room floor, as it were, including leader dates by Eddie Higgins and Louis Hayes (though they appear elsewhere in the program as sidemen).  I may try to do a sequel at some point.

So you didn't play any Sarah McLawler? (One of the early jazz organists.)

For shame!
