this episode is no longer available


Last heard on The Hear and Now singing with the country honky-tonk band Crying Time, Jill Rogers turns to jazz, specifically songs associated with Billie Holiday and Chet Baker, with a brilliant quartet that includes Myles Boisen and Jon Finkbeiner on guitars, Dan Seamans on acoustic bass, and David Slusser on saxophones. Tony Ferro engineers with Miguel Guerrero.

In the second hour, we acknowledge and honor the passing of comic genius, radio programmer, and bandleader Mal Sharpe of Berkeley, and the jazz giant McCoy Tyner, plus new music by Kofy Brown, The Third Mind, and Bobby Previte / Nels Cline / Jamie Saft.
