Continuum – A Journey Through Jazz
Episode 33: “Gratitude & Leftovers”
Hosted & Produced by J. Scott Fugate, “The Jazz Evangelist”
Thanksgiving might be over . . . but I’m still grateful and surviving on leftovers. There is plenty to share, so please sit down and join me!
It’s hot and ready to be served to you free & legal, right here: http://02bc1fe.netsolhost.com/mp3/scottfugate/Continuum33-Gratitude-Leftovers.mp3
As I was planning last week’s Thanksgiving episode, I came across quite a few songs that I considered playing – but decided to go with a particular ambience which encompassed the mood and encouraged reflection & emotional recall of the season. However, I was left with several songs that I still wanted to share with you – so, join me now for some left-overs . . . and let me tell you just how grateful I am for your listenership!
This may be my most eclectic episode to date, as I reveal my gratitude to you by serving up the soulful groove of Earth, Wind & Fire, Miki Howard & Chiezda; the acapella New Jack Swing of Boyz II Men & Take 6; the Traditional Jazz of Louis Armstrong; the Hard Bop of Horace Silver; and the Straight Ahead Jazz of Thelonious Monk. There are also some beautifully soulful & jazzy vocals from Al Jarreau, Annie Sellick & Dianne Reeves. This episode comes to an end by kicking off the beginning of the Christmas Holiday season with some sweet, soulful Gospel reflection offered up by Rachelle Ferrell, Mighty Truth & Take 6.
The titles of each song reveal this show’s essence . . . with 5 songs about Thanks & Gratitude, 4 songs about food, 2 songs about Grandma, and a few others that have a message for you to chew on. So, dig in and enjoy the feast!
I would love to hear from you with any comments, thoughts, reflections, or anything that happens to be on your mind. Just send an email to Scott@Soulandjazz.com
