We have a different take on jazz standards in this week’s podcast. Inspired by a Facebook post, I assembled this program of modern compositions that may or may not be considered new standards along with more traditional covers of older standards.

Then we “Give Thanks” with saxophonist Jimmy Greene, and partake of some Soul Food with Cyrus Chestnut and Atla DeChamplain. Lots more music follows.
