  • Tuesday Jazz: Les McCann

    Les McCann, Compared to What

    On the off-chance that you passed by someone in a beret this morning, we hope that you didn’t stop dead in your tracks and start pointing, guffawing, and leaping from one foot to the other making strange nasal intonations that were supposed to sound foreign. Because, doofus, it may not have been a wandering Frenchman. It might simply have been a Jazz enthusiast celebrating another wonderful Tuesday. Above, Les McCann takes us for a political walk.

  • Tuesday Jazz: Dr Lonnie Smith

    Dr Lonnie Smith Trio

    It’s Tuesday already, that means that the week is over a third way done. Approximately. This is really great news. It also means that it’s time to slip into something a little bit polo-necked, shoot up a responsible amount of heroin, and allow Dr Lonnie Smith’s zany organ to take you for a jog around the block.

    Idris Muhammad, Could Heaven Ever Be Like This

    It’s Tuesday, friends, that makes it Jazz time. So, take off your square work clothes, slip into a nice polo neck, a Frenchman’s beret, some Orbison shades, and allow the cool Jazz Funk sounds of Idris Muhammad to take your ears for a jog.

  • Tuesday Jazz: Gary Bartz

    Gary Bartz, Uhuru Sasa

    Well, it’s Tuesday already, that was quick. Time to replace your soothing cup of tea with something a little bit herbal, grow your beard to a bushy thickness, and allow yourself a set of gigantic reading glasses – it’s Jazz time. Today, Gary Bartz allows the drummer to take us all for a drive.

  • Tuesday Jazz: Doris

    Doris, Beatmaker

    Hey cats, it’s Tuesday, so don’t be all square with your jobs and your sandwiches for lunch. Instead, slip on some slacks, grab a hat with a brim, and talk with intensity about how a trumpet once took you for a walk, metaphorically speaking. Here’s the excellent Doris!

  • Happy Birthday Miles Davis, here’s Michael McDonald!

    Michael McDonald, What a Fool Believes

    Had a gargantuan stroke not done him in almost twenty years ago, Miles Davis would be turning a very jazzy 82 today. And how appropriate that his birthday would fall on a Tuesday, being that it has been declared the official day of cardigans, eyebrow twisting, and sweet brassy jazz sounds. By us. Anyway, we decided that dead or not, we were getting the guy a gift, so we put on some sweatbands and shouted at one another through the din of a squash club, before it boiled down to a toss up between some sexy leather underpants, or a clip of Michael McDonald – a singer with great hair and a voice like a beautiful deaf man. In the end we got him both. Happy Birthday Miles Davis!

  • Tuesday Jazz: Archie Shepp

    Archie Shepp, Attica Blues

    It’s that time again – Tuesday – so pull on your best tank top, allow your hair to tousle into a confused upward mess, and let some interesting Jazz music seize you by the spectacles and walk you around the room. Today, Archie Shepp invites us to become startled by his fantastic sax.

  • Tuesday Jazz: The Crusaders

    The Crusaders, Keep That Same Old Feeling

    As ever, Tuesdays are now set aside for thinking time, with the aid of a mellow background accompaniment – by which we mean a magnificent horn, or a man taking a trombone for a walk. Above, Jazz-Funk legends The Crusaders explain that we need to keep the feeling, keep that same old feeling. Too true, guys!

  • Tuesday Jazz: Frank Strazzeri

    Cloudburst, Frank Strazzeri

    Nothing goes together quite as superbly as sunshine and aggressive jazz music – except perhaps egg mayo and onions. So, close your eyes, imagine you’re walking around a sundrenched cove somewhere, and enjoy the space-crazy jazz-funkĀ  sounds of Frank Strazzeri and his explosive piano. Great record, great.
