Show #13 (I think) Playlist, etc.

It’s that time of the week again, friends! As I posted a few days ago, tonight’s show is going to be jazz-heavy. All jazz, in fact. There’s some straight forward traditional stuff, some crazygonuts freestyle possibilities, some very rock influenced options, big bands, little bands, duos… and only one hour, so I’ll make due with what I’ve got and try to get all the bases covered. There’s SO MUCH great jazz out there! I’ll barely be able to skim the surface, and I know it, but man – I’m going to try. I know you’ll dig this!

Update:

1. Buddy Rich & His Big Band – Dancing Men (feat. Simon Phillips on drums)
2. Gordon Goodwin’s Big Phat Band – High Maintenance
3. John Coltrane – Giant Steps
4. Paul Bley & Sonny Greenwich – Steeplechase
5. Trent Reschny – Alone Together
6. Stan Getz & João Gilberto – It Might As Well Be Spring (feat. Astrud Gilberto on vocals)
7. Michael Brecker Quindectet – Brexterity
8. The Bad Plus – Iron Man
9. Diana Krall – Stop This World

So much good jazz out there. I think there were about three times as many tunes on my list that didn’t get played, opposed to the few that did. Oh well. I’ll just have to do another jazz show someday, or sneak them into other upcoming shows. As usual; thanks for listening. Hope you can tune in again next week!

Check back here often for updates, as well. 😉

    • Hi Dave!

      Thanks for dropping by. Hope you caught the program. I think it went pretty well. I have to try harder not to say “uuuhhhh” all the time, though.

      Cheers! Hope you’re enjoying your time off.

  1. Hey Chris, I enjoyed the show! I’m just a little lazy about getting to the website to say something about it….. obviously….

    There was some very different Jazz stuff on there, and all of it was good. Excellent choices!

    • Hey dude,

      Glad you caught it! I tried to play a variety. There’s really so much stuff that I brought but didn’t get to play. I’ll have to have another jazz show soon.

      How’d you like that Iron Man cover?

  2. The Iron Man cover was great, definitely made me laugh when it started. I honestly never expected a Jazz cover of Iron Man. Excellent choice to end the show with!

    • The guy who hosts “That Rock Show” right after mine was really surprised to hear that Iron Man jazz-style.

      They’re a surprisingly bad-ass band (The Bad Plus). It is very possible that I play another of theirs tonight!
