0:00 AM Barney Kessel “Rose Room” — Live At The Jazz Mill 1954
BIRTHDAY Wednesday, October 17 - Barney Kessel [Guitar] 10/17/1923 100 Guitarist Muskogee, OK 2004
“As a key member of the Wrecking Crew — the legendary band of top Hollywood studio musicians assembled by producer Phil Spector — Kessel played on some of the most enduring hits of the 1960s.”
“...recorded at the Phoenix night club The Jazz Mill by Jack Miller, a young audio engineer. He later moved to Los Angeles and worked on albums with the Rolling Stones, Henry Mancini and others. Kessel was barely 30 and had only recently become a leader in his own right at the time of this recording with The Jazz Millers. The group featured bassist Gene Stoffel, drummer Art Kile and pianist Pete Jolly, the only member of the trio to achieve national prominence.”

0:11 AM Lorraine Feather “In A Hot Minute” — Math Camp
NEW RELEASE “Math Camp is lyricist/jazz singer Lorraine Feather’s 12th all-original album, and this time her inspiration is math and physics, a theme that winds through ten songs.” [LORRAINE FEATHER – MATH CAMP LYRICIST/SINGER’S UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL AND INTIMATE RELEASE FOLLOWS FOUR CONSECUTIVE GRAMMY-NOMINATED ALBUMS October 5, 2018 Release (Relarion 314), LA Jazz Scene]
“Both the music and words of Math Camp flow through one’s mind like a soft, smoke-filled, uneasy series of dreams whose meanings seem perfectly clear when asleep but are somehow just beyond the grasp of the waking mind to comprehend” [Lorraine Feather Returns in “Math Camp”, Lynn René Bayley, The Art Music Lounge]
0:17 AM John Scofield “Eisenhower” — Meant to Be
IN CONCERT Friday, October 19 - Jazz 7:30 PM - Jazz at TSRI: John Scofield Combo 66 — The Auditorium at The Scripps Research Institute DEETS>Jazz88.org/calendar
“Just how distinctive will be demonstrated over a nine-day period this month, when each of these three Grammy Award-winning guitarists perform separate San Diego concerts. It’s hard to recall three guitar greats of their stature appearing here in such close succession, let alone three whose careers have intertwined as closely.”
““I think all three of us have tried to find ways that we can offer different playing environments to our fellow musicians by coming up with approaches to what the guitar can be in an ensemble that is, sonically, somehow different from where it was when we all first started. Also I think all three of us have worked hard in the area of dynamics and touch in our individual ways.”” - John Scofield [Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell and John Scofield, guitar greats all, discuss their mutual admiration society, George Varga, San Diego Union Tribune]
0:26 AM Dan Papaila “You Don'T Know What Love Is” — Full Circle
IN CONCERT Thursday, October 18 - Solo Jazz Guitar 5:30 PM - Dan Papaila — Lodge Torrey Pines DEETS>Jazz88.org/calendar
“Dan Papaila is a San Diego based jazz guitarist whose roots are firmly planted in the blues. Dan honed his bluesy style playing with the likes of R&B legends Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, Big Joe Turner, Plas Johnson, and Johnny “Hammond” Smith.” [About Dan, SanDiegoGuitar.com]

0:53 AM Christian McBride “Pier One Import” — New Jawn
NEW RELEASE “Jawn [jän]: noun. A slang terminology from Philadelphia. All-purpose term for a person, place or thing. If there’s one thing the acclaimed bassist knows, it’s that when it comes to grit there’s no better resource to draw from than his own hometown, Philadelphia. So, McBride turned to one of the city’s most beloved colloquialisms to christen his latest project, Christian McBride’s New Jawn. On the band’s eponymous debut, these four stellar musicians ably walk the razor’s edge between thrilling virtuosity and gut-punch instinctiveness. The release will be available on October 26 via Brother Mister Productions, McBride’s own newly launched imprint of his longtime label, Mack Avenue Records. [Christian McBride's New Jawn, Mack Avenue Music Group]
1:01 AM The Howard Alden/Dan Barrett Quintet “Pannonica” — Swing Street
BIRTHDAY Wednesday, October 17 - Howard Alden [Guitar] 10/17/1958 100 Newport Beach, CA
“Part of the '80s swing movement, Howard Alden is a brilliant guitarist (on both electric and acoustic) who has also mastered the seven-string guitar and the banjo. Alden started off playing banjo in Dixieland bands in pizza parlors in Southern California. When he acquired a guitar, he took lessons from Jimmy Wyble and Howard Roberts. He worked at Disneyland when he was 18 and in 1978 debuted in the big leagues with Red Norvo. “ [Howard Alden, Allmusic Artist Biography by Scott Yanow]
“This is a remarkable record by the Howard Alden-Dan Barrett Quintet. Highly recommended.“ [Swing Street, AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow]

1:08 AM Bobby Broom “Do It Again” — Soul Fingers
NEW RELEASE “Broom’s latest recording is with his new organ group, the Bobby Broom Organi-Sation, which was the opening act for Steely Dan’s fifty-city, North American tour in 2014. The new recording, Soul Fingers, is arguably Bobby’s most ambitious to date. Produced by the legendary drummer/producer Steve Jordan, Bobby once again revisits the music of his youth, this time employing a wide range of instrumental palates, in addition to palpable group interplay and his own, always soulful and singularly personal sound and style.” [Bobby Broom & The Organi-Sation - Soul Fingers (September 28, 2018 JAZZLINE), Republic of Jazz]
1:13 AM Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra w/Wynton Marsalis “Ban Ban Quere” — Una Noche Con Ruben Blades
NEW RELEASE “Music-directed by Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra bassist Carlos Henriquez (called an “emerging master in the Latin jazz idiom” by DownBeat magazine), Una Noche con Rubén Blades features Blades, backed by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, performing Blades’ own beloved compositions, including “Pedro Navaja,” “Patria,” and “El Cantante,” as well as swing-era standards like “Too Close for Comfort” and “Begin the Beguine.”
“The music I arranged for Rubén Blades to perform with the Orchestra sounds like Panama, New Orleans, and New York all mixed into one. Those sounds form the heart of all our stories as musicians, and in combining them we reaffirmed that we’re all in this together.”” [Blue Engine Records announces “Una Noche con Rubén Blades”, Latin Jazz Network]
Wednesday, October 17 - Blues Jam - Guest Jammer: James Reed!
1:23 AM Fred Hersch “Crepuscule with Nellie/Reflections” — Thelonious
BIRTHDAY Sunday, October 21 - Fred Hersch [Piano] 10/21/1955 100 Cincinnati, OH
BOTTOM OF HOUR ID: Gilbert Castellanos - Wednesday Jazz Jam at Panama 66!
1:28 AM Jon Batiste “Nocturne No. 1 In D Minor” — Hollywood Africans
NEW RELEASE “In particular with this project, it’s going back to the basics, of me just at the piano and singing, and the idea of where we come from being highlighted -- this is the lineage I’m a part of, what I represent. I think it’s important to state that and state it on my own terms.”
“Years before Jon Batiste started regularly commuting to New York's Ed Sullivan Theater as the bandleader on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, he was a student at Juilliard -- who found himself, frequently, learning off-the-clock in the quiet museum halls and low-ceilinged jazz clubs of the city. He'd gaze at the frenzied strokes of Jean-Michel Basquiat or trip down the stairs of downtown jazz Mecca the Village Vanguard. [Jon Batiste on New Album 'Hollywood Africans': 'I Want to Be a Torchbearer' Like Jean-Michel Basquiat, Hilary Hughes, Billboard]
1:31 AM Pat Metheny “Roofdogs” — The Unity Sessions
IN CONCERT San Diego Symphony Fall-Winter Season! Jazz 88.3 is so proud to support the San Diego Symphony's 2018-2019 Fall-Winter Season! The season kicks off with Pat Metheny, Saturday, October 27th (8PM).
“Metheny has customarily documented his bands with a live concert film, but this time he made The Unity Sessions in a theater with cameras in place of a live audience. It's an approach that translates especially well to audio-only release. While the energy that comes from audience interaction must surely be lacking, so is the possibility of extraneous audience noise. “ [Pat Metheny: The Unity Sessions, Mark Sullivan, AllAboutJazz.com]
1:44 AM Duke Ellington “Mood Indigo” — Early Ellington, Disc Three: 1930-31
ON THIS DAY Wednesday, October 17 - Duke Ellington and his Orchestra record "Mood Indigo" for Brunswick in 1930.
“The tune was composed for a radio broadcast in October 1930 and was originally titled "Dreamy Blues". It was "the first tune I ever wrote specially for microphone transmission," Ellington recalled. "The next day wads of mail came in raving about the new tune, so Irving Mills put a lyric to it." Renamed "Mood Indigo," it became a jazz standard.” [Mood Indigo, Wikipedia]
1:47 AM Black Note “No Introduction” — Jungle Music
IN CONCERT Wednesday, October 17 - Jam Session 8:30 PM Gilbert Castellanos & The Wednesday Jazz Jam — Panama 66 @ SDMA DEETS>Jazz88.org/calendar
“Black/Note initially created a stir partly because many on the East Coast have a stereotyped view of music from Los Angeles and were not expecting a young sextet of superior musicians dedicated toward revitalizing jazz to emerge from L.A. Although this group does stick to originals throughout their second release (their debut for Columbia), the often hard-driving music is not all that innovative, but instead is a logical extension of the hard bop tradition. Lovers of classic Blue Note albums should enjoy this dynamic set.” [Jungle Music, Black Note, AllMusic Review by Scott Yanow]
