Host: Andrea Young
Theme: Jazz Male Vocalists & Pop Jazz

“If you want to swing and shout
Get your heels and get about
I’m an errand girl for rhythm, send me”
–written by Nat King Cole, as recorded by Diana Krall

Some jazz shows just play themselves!  When I stepped into the studio close to 8pm this past Tuesday to  host ‘Jazz From Aspen’, I didn’t know the first 90 minutes of my show would turn out to be songs by male jazz vocalists.  From Dr. John’s new album Ske-Dat-De-Dat – The Spirit of Satch to Mel Torme’s classic ‘I Got Plenty o’ Nuttin’ (not available commercially any longer), the music just picked itself.

From there it was a few political tunes and then some soothing jazz guitar and piano to round out the final set.  Tragically and sadly, that day was the day that the journalist Steven Sotloff, a friend of friends, was killed.   I played Jean-Luc Ponty’s ‘Forever Together’ in dedicating this show to his memory.
