This Week. . .

Passing Notes and Early Jazz resurface this weekend. I’ve been locked down in the bunker putting the finishing touches on the first draft of a theatre piece that, hopefully, will be produced this summer by my friends at one of the better theatre companies in South Florida. More on that in due time.

If you’re looking for the playlist from “Straight, No Chaser: The New Music Hour,” check here tomorrow.

The PN Friday broadcast was a “Best Of. . .” but in future installments I’m lining up reviews of Tim Dorsey’s latest novel, another Future of Music piece, some conversation with Stanley Crouch, and the baseball season preview.

On the air for Early Jazz this weekend, Saturday’s show is the usual mix of blues, jazz, with some funk on the side, and featuring the work of Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis. On Sunday, more of the same, plus an extended set of Dexter Gordon.
