Friday Night JazzI'm on the road bound for San Francisco, but nothing can stop the Friday Night Jazz groove. Perish the thought! A sort of random collection tonight, I admit, but God knows it got me through the two-day process of moving out of my apartment. So, pour yourself a nice single malt, and join me.
First, from disc two of Dizzy Gillespie's Odyssey, 1945-52 box set, we have the fun "Smoky Hollow Blues". Listen especially for the trumpet exchanges between Dizzy and Dave Burns.
Okay, I know our second one isn't technically jazz, but it's too good not to post. From the ridiculously (and surprisingly) good compilation album Chess Club Rhythm & Blues, Etta James' "Mellow Fellow".
