Coffeetime - 7/21 Guest Slot - MP3 & Playlist

beatnik or just beat?

Guest slots rule! I have been a fan of Angelynn Grant's Coffeetime for many years, going back to hearing the "featured soundtrack of the week" as I opened and priced endless boxes of books in the back room of a shopping mall bookstore back in the early 90's, loving the mix of cool jazz and vocal tracks that she has shaped into something special. I sweated out the selections for days prior, and Good Lord I never realized how hard it would be to read off all those session players! Many thanks to Angelynn for letting me fill in, and everyone please check out Coffeetime every Thursday from 2-4PM EST on 88.1 WMBR Cambridge, MA.
Click on the photo of legendary Bostonian Johnny Hodges below to hear me stutter and stammer my way through the recounting of bass trombonists and the guy who plays the tipple - plus 2 hours of the finest jazz I can provide!
Playlist provided further down for "blindfold test" hints...
