Two calls.
One caller wanted to get info on Charlie Hunter's "Fine Corinthian Leather". I gave a shout-out on the air waves to a certain Darrell Reimer, who clued me in on this seemingly secret CD release. Unfortunately today, the airwawves weren't strong enough to cross over into Ontario. Hey Darrell! Thanks again.

Another caller, shortly after The Bad Plus' "Radio Cure" finished, made sure to inform me that The Bad Plus were arrogant AND pretentious. HE laughed. He hung up. That was it. No discussion, no further elucidation of the topic.

I did make sure to announce multiple times during the 3 hour show that The Bad Plus will be appearing as part of this year's annual Clifford Brown Jazz Festival. They'll be there on June the 17th! Of course, I'll be providing pics and synops on my other site, sometime in mid June.
