  1. Bobby Bradford switched permanently from trumpet to cornet in 1973, using the horn for great timbre flexibility and expressiveness in deftly organized spontaneous composition, something he’s excelled at since first coming out of Texas as a boyhood friend of the great Ornette Coleman. Blue Lake Public Radio’s celebration of Bobby Bradford’s 83 birthday is available to hear today under “Programs” and “Jazz From Blue Lake” here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  2. Bob Blumenthal typified Milt Jackson’s July 2, 1948 quartet recording session with Thelonious Monk as easily his most important outside of the Modern Jazz Quartet, and one which produced music of the highest level, some of the most celebrated in Monk’s career. Combine those recordings with the July 23, 1951 session led by Monk featuring Jackson on “Four in One” and “Criss Cross” and you’ll be listening to last night’s Jazz From Blue Lake, here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand .
  3. Geri Allen. You've read the tributes flowing out of Michigan's jazz scene about her, and the jazz world's incredible appreciation of this dynamic creative artist. Tonight on Jazz From Blue Lake at midnight eastern time we'll rebroadcast a 2008 solo piano performance she gave live on the radio from the Blodgett Recital Hall at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. Streaming from www.bluelake.org/listen . Geri went to Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp as a 6th grader (the camp is for high school students).

The other four hours of the program feature Shepp in the first 20 minutes, with “Out On Blue Lake” in the 3rd hour.

  7. Jazz From Blue Lake celebrated the music of Sun Ra, jazz’s sun god, yesterday evening and the program is available today on demand from www.bluelake.org/ondemand . As his biographer John Swed said, Sun Ra believed music has a power that is closest you can come to certain God-like experiences. Music is a model for a kind of reality that’s not otherwise available directly to the mind. The broadcast includes part of a special live performance by the Blue Lake studios from saxophonist Marshall Allen and bassist Henry Grimes. (Image by Jan Persson, thanks to Stephen Haynes )

  14. 1979? First assignment for The State News (MSU): interview Ralph Towner and write a concert advance from the conversation. When I told Towner it was my first time speaking to any musician for the record, he graciously jumped in and pulled me along. The story he told about hitching a ride on a steamer ship to Europe to study classical guitar in Vienna with Karl Scheit isn’t repeated. The steamer ship part, anyway. Towner wrote a piece for The Paul Winter Consort called “Juniper Bear,” which a group of Grand Rapids musicians – Ric Troll, Marc Larson and Kevin O’Connell – took as their band name, promoting improvisational music throughout Grand Rapids in the 1970’s. Seeds are sown. Tonight, to celebrate my 34 anniversary broadcasting “Jazz From Blue Lake,” we’ll hear the music of Ralph Towner (on his 77th birthday) and give you good reason not to dread insomnia. 10 p.m. – 3 a.m. eastern via www.bluelake.org/radio

  17. Bobby Hackett is world famous as the trumpeter on Glenn Miller's "String of Pearls" from 1941, and then a series of mood music recordings produced and conducted by actor and jazz fan Jackie Gleason.

  21. Many of us in west Michigan are iced out of work or school today.
