    Jazz Bastard Podcast 291 - Cannonball Adderley - Assessing Airshots

    The record store day madness continues as the boys take two Cannonball Adderley air-shots from France for a spin. Whether he's Poppin in Paris or Burning in Bordeaux, the listener can hear Adderley's group transitioning from the sixties to the seventies, even if things get bumpy from time to time. To put the great alto saxophone player's creativity into context, two of his more surprising releases on Capitol Records also get a look in. Once you've heard the man's stone class...

    Jazz Bastard Podcast 290 - It's a Manne's, Manne's, Manne's World

    Jazz Bastard Podcast 290 - It's a Manne's, Manne's, Manne's World

    Where jazz drumming's concerned, sometimes Blakey makes ya shaky and Buddy's too thud-y. Where to turn? Go West, young man, and samples the wares of one Shelly Manne. Manne, a transplanted Easterner, made a career in California logging studio work, appearing on countless sessions, and leading his own group with varying personnel that was always know as Shelly Manne's men. Now, just in time for Record Store Day, Reel to Real is issuing live days by the Manne and, with ...

    Jazz Bastard Podcast 289 - There But for the Grace of Kelly

    Sometimes podcast hosts just want to watch the world - or at least their co-host - burn. Hence the explanation for the inclusion of a pretty inexplicable pander-fest in this otherwise august and serious podcast. The other selections (all recent releases) incorporate humor in a couple of cases, and, well, don't in the most serious selection. Pat reports on a live concert by the more furrowed-browed of the alto saxophonists while Mike catches a few much needed zzzz's. G...

    Jazz Bastard Podcast 288 - It's (Never) the Final Countdown, Part Trois

    After a couple episodes away, we return to the New York Times list of best jazz albums of 2023 and finish it off. It's happier days for the most part. The boys acknowledge that these selections are all, more or less, actually jazz, and some are even pretty enjoyable. Jonathan Suazo – RICANO; Mendoza Hoff Revels – ECHOLOCATION; Micah Thomas – REVEAL; Matana Roberts - COIN COIN CHAPTER FIVE: IN THE GARDEN.

    Jazz Bastard Podcast 287 - Respect the Rabbit (An Interview with Owen Broder)

    Jazz Bastard Podcast 287 - Respect the Rabbit (An Interview with Owen Broder)

    For some fans, the story of jazz saxophone begins with John Coltrane. This episode, the boys interview Owen Broder, who gives propers to Coltrane's old boss, Johnny Hodges. Mainstay of the Duke Ellington band and lover of lettuce and tomato sandwiches, the Rabbit (as he was known) possessed the most sumptuous sound ever heard from an alto saxophone and knew every microtone of the territory between each note of the scale. Owen talks about his Hodges Front and Center duo...

    Jazz Bastard Podcast 286 - Eleven is the Loneliest Number

    Jazz Bastard Podcast 286 - Eleven is the Loneliest Number

    Many years ago, bastard Mike suggested that our anniversary shows feature groups comprised of as many members as the anniversary was of years. How's that for a mouthful (mindful?) Anyway, good idea until right about now. Eleven is an awkward number unless you're fielding a footie team, and the boys have some issues finding albums that fit the bill or even glance in the direction of this anniversary. Next year, all bets are off. Nat Adderly – THAT’S RIGHT; Bobby S...

Thank you for introducing me to your podcast!

First time listening today while eating my lunch and listening to Chet Baker on Alexxa. Love your voice (but miss your face and baby blues)! Thank you Mike, coffee next? Jazz show in LA eventually? 😊

Keep it up!

Love the show. You guys have a real knack for this. Commentary is always (mostly lol?) insightful and well thought out. Love the humor and whit y’all bring to each episode. Would love to hear an episode on Art Pepper!!

Keep up the good work!

A podcast for all.

Though I'm a jazz novice, I'm still able to comprehend and roll with a lot of what Mike & Patt discuss. I love how they come to the episode with knowledge, opinions (often contrasting), and witty banter. Well worth the listen- even if youre like me and not familiar with the genre.
