Playlist for October 3, 2012

On the show this week recordings by Gerry Mulligan, Bill Charlap, Dave Douglas, the Nat King Cole Trio, the Modern Jazz Quartet, and by bassist Oscar Pettiford.  The 90th anniversary of Pettiford’s birth was Sunday; the ITG Blog has a 1945 movie clip spotlighting Pettiford with Coleman Hawkins, Howard McGhee, Sir Charles Thompson, and Denzil Best.

In addition on the
ITG Blog is a video of Dee Dee Bridgewater singing “Don’t Explain.”   This year's MJF finale performance, the all-star group Monterey Jazz Festival On Tour, which aired on KUSP this last Sunday, included this song and was one of the highlights of MJF55 for me.

KUSP Monterey Jazz Blog includes on-air interviews, many of artists just after they stepped off the Arena stage, excellent MFJ photos, and a number of Jeff Dayton-Johnsons personal impressions of the festival.

There will also be a selection by the vocalist
Kurt Elling who will perform this Monday at Kuumbwa Jazz in downtown Santa Cruz.
