Episode #32 ::: Jazz Standards & Practices

June 2, 2017

After a few episodes running this format I decided to quit avoiding the standard classics and run some tunes that are fun to talk about. I had a lot of fun talkiing about Duke Ellington's 1956 Newport performance. Think of this as Jazz 101.


John Coltrane - Blue Train

Duke Ellington & John Coltrane - In a Sentimental Mood

Duke Ellington - Diminuendo in Blue and Crescendo in Blue (live at Newport 1956)


The Horace Silver Quintet - Song For My Father

Miles Davis - Frelon Brun

Dave Brubeck - Take Five

Sonny Rollins - St. Thomas 


Charles Mingus - Original Faubus Fables
