Tiz autumn, we call on Clark Ter­ry a real brass man then defer to younger gen­er­a­tions like Wyn­ton Marsalis to con­tin­ue. No one did it like Min­gus, but the Dynasty car­ries on his unique lega­cy. Jonathan Kreis­berg is a young gui­tarist sound­ing today as many elder states­men first did, which shows promise. After all that we need to mel­low out and see what kind of mood Lee Mor­gan and his Blue Note cohorts were in 64. For rhythms hint­ing at Latin lets con­sult Cin­co de Moio and Gabriel Mark Has­sel­bach. In hour two Kar­rin Allyson con­tin­ues her ener­gy with a new the­mat­ic album with guests like Kurt Elling. Stan Gets is mes­mer­iz­ing on his tenor sax, Joshua Jerns Jazz Orches­tra keeps the swing relaxed and we get our dai­ly dose of Miles and Coltrane. To wel­come a gui­tar theme we turn to the blues, name­ly Mag­ic Slim and the Teardrops and Tins­ley Ellis, respec­tive­ly. George Cole­man is superb after six decades of sax play­ing, his side­man is equal­ly expe­ri­enced pianist Harold Mabern. And to seal the gui­tar deal, how about one of Wes Mont­gomery’s first record­ings, with fel­low Indi­anapo­lis guy Fred­die Hub­bard. Let’s make it habit­u­al and a rit­u­al, hand-picked jazz on the radio for you since 1975, Hack­saw Jazz.
