In A Mellow Tone
Wednesday November 25th, 2020 with Heavy Ben
Birthdays, versions, HAVNRecords, new releases in funky and spiritual jazz

Happy birthday to Nat Adderley (1931-2000), Holly Cole (1963) and Paul Desmond (1924-1977) Throughout the show we'll hear versions of classics composed by Joe Henderson, Phoarah Sanders, Captain Beefheart, Jef Gilson, Louis Armstrong, Flying Lotus, and Tom Waits A spotlight (7 tunes) on Hamilton, ON based label HAVNRecords (Hamilton Audio Visual Node), with jazz on the funky, electronic and experimental side Lots of new releases including two cuts apiece from compilations on Blue Note and Soul Jazz records, from labels Gondwana and International Anthem, and in the last half hour new deep/spiritual jazz from Dwight Trible, Enrique Rodriguez and Kahil El’Zabar
Thank you to Bruce Walton for giving me the opportunity to fill-in on this week's program. Regular listeners will know that something is up with this different version of "In A Mellow Tone", (I have this one on an old LP and though it apropos). You'll also know that something is up as many of these artists and much of this music has hitherto not been played before. It pushes forward, as jazz always does. I hope you enjoy this mix.
