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.!
