yesterday was al cohn day, i feel as if i’ve listened to every al cohn show that i have (well, a lot anyway!).  i was going to share one of his shows (up next!), but this little jem from jim galloway, featuring al cohn and eddie lockjaw davis, has elbowed its way to the front of the queue!  a woody herman show (also with mr. al cohn) was trying to do the same, but will just have to wait.  anyway, a bit of a busy day at work, but with these shows and the warm sunshine we’ve had, it was a beautiful day.  tip ‘o the hat to ‘jazzrita’ for sharing this.
