Another Top Ten


This list comes from Michael Stratton, who has the best Sunday night show in the whole kingdom of jazz enthusiasm, "The Vinyl Side of Midnight," on WLNZ, in East Lansing, MI. I catch it on the web from 6:00 to 9:00 pm PST.


10 - GET READY - Carl Allen & Rodney Whitaker
9 - FROM THE PLANTATION TO THE PENITENTIARY - Wynton Marsalis
8 - A LOVE SUPREME (THE LEGACY OF JOHN COLTRANE) - Turtle Island Quartet
7 - DEAR MILES - Ron Carter
6 - KIDS (LIVE AT DIZZY'S CLUB COCA-COLA) - Joe Lovano & Hank Jones
5 - LAWN CHAIR SOCIETY - Kenny Werner
4 - PILGRIMAGE - Michael Brecker
3 - SKY BLUE - Maria Schneider Orchestra
2 - NIGHTMOVES - Kurt Elling
1 - SONG FOR ANYONE - Chris Potter 10

"The top 5 are really classics, I think," Michael writes, "and I've been trying to give Potter heavy air play. Well, all of them. "

I listen to Mike every week. It's the best jazz mix on radio.

Yes it probably is. He's a major dude! But now give a listen on Friday nights to our show! Same time as Michael's show, 9-midnight EST, on KHSU (online--links at the top of the links list).

Thanks for commenting! You're the first!
