|One of my first go-to albums as a young DJ was Fried Buzzard by Lou Donaldson. Idris Muhammad was there. And now there is the sorrow of his passing. He was artistic and he was solid. Beyond that, he recorded in the upper echelon of the modern cats with traditional roots. Dig him.|
- Lou Donaldson - Midnight Creeper
- Ahmad Jamal - Big Byrd
- Joe Lovano - Friendly Fire
- Charles Earland - Black Talk
- Pharoah Sanders - Sun In Aquarius

|To pay proper tribute to bassist Charlie Haden would take some hours, even days. A national holiday would work but two hours is all I have. This program focused on three things; Ornette Coleman, Keith Jarrett, and the duets.|
- Death and the Flower - this brews into a creative storm without leaving a mark.
- First Song - (for Ruth) is often added, for his wife. Pretty tune, with Pat Metheny. A lot of people love him, Metheny.
- Circus '68 '69 - from the carousel intro to the chaotic finale, a great translation of political dystopia. Music Liberation Orchestra.
- Back Home Blues - a Charlie Parker line from Quartet West. Cleanse the palate, ready to continue.
- Folk Medley - little solo tucked into the middle of Don Cherry's Art Deco. Proof of Haden's value.
- Blues In Motian - Could have done two hours of Montreal Tapes and been happy.
- Pocket Full of Cherry - Keith Jarrett plays alto sax, Dewey Redman on tenor. 60th minute at full tilt.
- For a Free Portugal - with Paul Motian. see this
- Out of Focus - with Don Cherry.
- O.C. - with Ornette Coleman.
- Blues Connotation, Folk Tale, and Ramblin. This was it. This was where I started. One of the places, anyway.
- For Turiya - with Alice Coltrane on harp. A heavenly sendoff. Happy/sad right now.
