This episode takes us back to a birthday celebration I produced for Bill in 2008. It contains music from Bill's discography (including 'Honky Tonk') as well as interviews with drummers Chris Columbo and Shep Sheppard. At the end, we hear the voice of Bill, himself, from a 1994 interview I did with him. I hope you enjoy...

This is a two part radio program I produced on trumpeter Lee MorganIt originally aired July 10, 1988 - what would have been his 50th birthday. After viewing the great new film 'They Call Him Morgan' I thought about bringing this out of my archives. Note that I did not go into Lee's drug involvement as did the documentary nor did I scrutinize his demise at the hand of his common-law wife, Helen. Hope you enjoy

This is my updated version of a radio show I did with organist Wild Bill Davis in 1992. Bill Davis truly was the Pied Piper of jazz organ: showing his followers how to create a big band sound with just a three piece combo. Bill has never really received the credit he deserved for his pioneering efforts in jazz organ combo work... so here was one of my attempts to increase the awareness surrounding his importance to the genre.

This is the latest version of a radio show I produced with an interview I did with Jimmy in his home when he lived near Sacramento. I had brought him some pasta and Italian sausage because I knew he dug Italian food. He cooked for me in his kitchen and then we went out to his music room to talk and record a conversation. He played his upright piano for me but would not play his Hammond B3, saying, "I ain't playin''cause you ain't payin'" He was forever trying to be funny...
