- From the 2011 album on the Brainfeeder lable – piano prodigy Peralta delivering exciting modern jazz with the assistance of Zane Musa (alto sax), Ben Wendel (tenor and soprano), Hamilton Price (bass) and Zach Harmon (drums).
- Cannonball with an all star band from October 1958 on the Riverside lable with Percy Heath(bass), Art Blakey (drums), Wynton Kelly (piano) and Milt Jackson (vibes).
- Recorded in New York in 2000 and released on the Birdology lable – Ahmad Jamal: piano; James Cammack : bass; Idris Muhammad: drums.
- This 1960 album was Etta’s first album for Prestige , and although she had been releasing records since 1944, including a dozen reords for RCA in 1946 and an album for King Records in 1957, she was treated as an overnight sensation when the title tune from the album went gold, hitting the Top 40 on the pop charts and reaching number five on the R&B charts.
- Classic ‘Trane from 1961 and a co-composition with McCoy Tyner – great solos from Freddie Hubbard and Eric Dolphy.
- Blanchard’s debut recording on the Concord label from 2009. The band features pianist Fabian Almazan, with Derrick Hodge on bass, drummer Kendrick Scott, Lionel Loueke on guitar and saxophonist Walter Smith III.
- Columbia Records 1962 debut release featuring the Thelonious Monk Quartet of Monk (piano), Charlie Rouse (tenor sax), John Ore (bass), and Frankie Dunlop (drums).
- The name of the band, album and tracks are derived from the letters of the forenames of Collin Walcott (tabla, sitar), Don Cherry (tpt, p, hunter’s guitar), and Nana Vasconcelos (per). This is multi-ethnic improvisational music, emerging from Walcott’s interest in Eastern Indian rhythms and Vasconcelos’s Brazilian heritage.
- Walcott appears again here with Paul McCandless, Glen Moore and Ralph Towner which was the classic Oregon line up. A 1974 release on the Vanguard Lable.

On this show:
- Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers – Lester Left Town -The Blue Note recordings of Art Blakey’s 1960 Jazz Messengers – wrongly described by me on the show as a recent release – this actually came out in 1992 – I was getting confused with the Miles Davis set next up in the show. This Wayne Shorter classic shows this great line-up at its very best.
- Miles Davis Quintet – Riot- Live in Europe 1967 The Bootleg Series Volume 1 – A brand new mammoth 3 CD/1 DVD release which captures a series of live dates from the second great quintet. Comparable to “The Complete Live at the Plugged Nickel” in the mind stretching ability of this band to deconstruct and revive jazz….on the show I describe this as Round Midnight when it is in fact Riot – this is due to my ineptitude and the mislabling of the CD….that’ll teach me to pay more attention.
- Bob James – Night Crawler – Heads – Grover Washington, Jr. (tenor & soprano sax) and David Sanborn (alto sax) feature on this 1977 date from James – derided by the purists at too “pop” i’d argue it acts as a useful counterpoint and yardstick to the more challenging end of the jazz world.
- Cannonball Adderley – Make Your Own Temple – Soul of the Bible – A 1972 release from Cannonball’s quintet featuring four additional percussionists and George Duke on Keyboards.
- Nat Adderley – Funny Funny – Don’t Look Back – A 1976 release on Steeplechase featuring Fernando Gumbs (bass) Onaje Allan Gumbs (piano) Nat Adderley (cornet) Ken McIntyre (alto sax, oboe, bassoon, flute, bass clarinet) John Stubblefield (tenor sax, soprano sax)Ira Buddy Williams (drums) Victor See Yuen (congas, percussion).
- Miles Davis Quintet – Footprints – Live in Europe 1967 The Bootleg Series Volume 1 – another tune from Disc 2 of this great release with Wayne Shorter’s keynote composition.
- Harold Land – In the back, in the corner, in the dark – Damisi – modal music from 1974 showing the early influences of fusion and funk – the excellent Buster Williams is on bass. Must play more Harold Land as he is terribly underrated which is great pity for such a great musician.
- Miles Davis Quintet – Riot – Live in Europe 1967 The Bootleg Series Volume 1 – a Herbie Hancock composition from the third CD of this great set.
- The Shadows – Nivram – Out of the Shadows – as requested by drummer of this parish Mr Michael John Leigh who advises this tune forms the basis of part of The Blimps recent Bin Bag Shuffle release (still available free as a download from here). Is it Jazz? I think so….
- Gabor Szabo – The Fortune Teller – Dreams – Third stream wonderment from Szabo from 1969….
