Full Moon Hacksaw

West coast jazz with Shorty Rogers begins our fes­tiv­i­ties of var­ied tem­pos, the mood con­tem­pla­tive next with Bill Evans. Ener­gy is pro­vid­ed by Eric Alexan­der and Horace Sil­ver with the Breck­er Broth­ers, and Bill Char­lap plays Leonard Bern­stein. Folky blues pre­cedes the inno­va­tions of 1950 Stan Ken­ton, his vocal­ist June Christy is con­trast­ed with singer Keely Smith from lat­er in the decade. Hand-Clap­pin Rock n Roll and Rhythm n Blues from Red Prysock, then Diz & Getz play Elling­ton to wrap hour num­ber one. For our sec­ond half enjoy South Beach sal­sa fol­lowed by 1960s Machi­to. New released this week come from trom­bon­ist Audrey Ochoa, pianist Bill Heid and gui­tarist Randy Napoleon. Hard bop is played by trum­peter Fred­die Hub­bard, a cou­ple vocal­ists in Eddie Jef­fer­son and Blos­som Dearie fol­low. Prime big band pro­vid­ed by Thad Jones caps our offer­ings. Time to refile my records, neck­ties, drums and cof­fee for anoth­er ses­sion, a lit­tle or a lot at a time, Hack­saw Jazz.
