This Week on Jazz Spectrum 91

October 10th - Often referred to as the most creative year in jazz, 1959 is a milestone year for the genre. With releases such as Ornette Coleman's The Shape of Jazz to Come, Dave Brubeck's Take Five, and Miles Davis's Kind Of Blue, it's easy to overlook a lot of great music released that year. This week we highlight amazing and forgotten releases from the year 1959. The featured song this week is Count Basie's classic, "Blue and Sentimental". Also, a set dedicated to the late Phil Woods.
