Jazz Profile of Jay McShann
NPR is offering an excellent fifty-minute audio documentary of Jay McShann as a free podcast. Plastic Sax suggests you grab it before it's pulled down. Few sounds make me happier than hearing McShann's Oklahoma twang. And his music? It just doesn't get any better. Man, I miss him.
(I took this photo at McShann's poorly attended 2006 memorial service at the Gem Theater.)
