Alphabet Jazz – Part 1
Originally broadcast as Jazz Gems on
CHFR-FM 96.5 – Sunday, December 8th/2013


When I left Toronto 25 years ago to come live in paradise I auctioned off most of my long-playing records so I could arrive in my new home debt free. Just recently I was pondering how many of those lps I had replaced with CDs and discovered that to fill the 2 hours of Jazz Gems I only managed A B C.

Featuring Cannonball Adderley, Pepper Adams, Paul Bley, Chet Baker, Art Blakey, Dave Brubeck, Anthony Braxton, Clifford Brown, Teddy Charles and John Coltrane. The rest of the alphabet I shall leave for a future opportunity.
