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
I will include an hour tribute to Johnny Mercer on Jazz Roots to celebrate what would have been his 100th birthday. I will focus on Johnny as a songwriter and Johnny as a singer. Join us and learn more about this songwriting icon.

This month's recipe is a Savory Sweet Potato Stew, just in time to warm you up for the chilly winter months. It comes to us from Angelique Page of Chicago, IL, and was featured in the October issue of Louisiana Cookin' magazine.
