Listener comments!

  9:09am Jack:

wow. I didn't realize Peter Lewis had made a solo album.
  9:25am David:

For some reason I've always thought Boz Scaggs should have covered this song.
  9:27am mike tp:

good morning bob. heard a great piece by roswell rudd yesterday called maine
  9:30am RHenderson:

Ahhh, my favorite Isley Bros. track, now enhanced with bichen vinyl artifact. Thanks, Bob. Great start to what will no doubt be another classic show.
  9:34am Majella Maltempi:

Good Morning Bob
  9:44am Jay/ London:

good morning bob just put your show on and what a great mucic that i meet love this band
  10:13am Mike Sin:

I'm enjoying the sounds on this bright morning, Bob. Nice!
  10:17am Taavi:


You probably know about Hampton Hawes's album of spirtuals. And of course the Shepp duo record wtih.... ah.. Horace Parlan.
  10:20am Peter K.:

"Jackie-ing" changes = "When the Saints Go Marching In"? Sorry, I'm just not hearing it. But that may just be my harmonic ignorance showing. Anyway, great show as always!
  10:23am tomB:

I hear it -- Saints is in Monk's line, but only reflected in the Horns and at a different speed than Monk is playing. But I would not have heard it w/o the tip.
  10:39am Peter K.:

@tomB: Then it's not based on the *chords* of "Saints," right? Maybe Bob didn't say that, but that's what I always assume is meant when a jazz piece is said to be "based on" a standard tune. Whatever. Good tune, in any case.
  11:01am Peter K.:

"Skate Now" was released two years after Riverside went bankrupt. The label got taken over by a bank and didn't do much more than reissue old titles and put out some stuff that had been recorded but not released under the old regime. This single was a one-shot as far as I know. Did Lou Courtney ever release anything else?
