We listened to Blues on the Corner, checked out McCoys R.H. and the interaction between Ron. and Elvin. What a jewel of a record, groundbreaking and an important staple in the development of the jazz language. We are also working on “All the things you are, a great classic. Plus, we have come up with a setlist for the gig at Smalls in January.
