Tonight 11/17/09 on the Kitchen Sink, after some preview music for Stanton Moore's James Black gig at Chickie Wah Wah and Loyola, Neko Case, and Dan Auerbach/Justin Townes Earle, we'll put on a bale of jazz from 1959, possibly the greatest year of recorded music ever. Dig this list from which we will draw:
Ornette - Shape of Jazz to Come
Trane - Giant Steps
Brubeck - Time Out
Bill Evans - Portrait in Jazz
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Mingus - Mingus Ah Um, Blues and Roots
Horace Silver - Finger Poppin
Also, if we have time, Benny Golson, Donald Byrd, Sarah Vaughn - you get the idea.
10 PM CST.
And happy 40th birthday to Professor Jonathan Field of Clemson, SC.!
