another request, and a good one.   really long shows like this are a real treat,  both in themselves and as a counterpoint to how often radio recordings miraculously clock in at just 1 hour.

Monty Alexander 1998-08-22 CD Front Inserti’ve been listening to monty alexander all day, except when talking to people (a lot) or away (a bit).  been working very well for me today.  just… nice.  (probably shouldn’t use that word.  cheerful, maybe?  pleasant without being smooth jazz?  i don’t know.)  this one, the last, got the most smiles. despite which, ‘smile’ is not the sample.
