Now's the Time: Jerry Dodgion

Kansas Citians have four more chances to catch Jerry Dodgion on the current barnstorming tour put together by Rob Scheps.  Dodgion and Scheps appear Thursday at Take Five Coffee + Bar, Friday at the Blue Room, Saturday at Lucky Brewgrille and Sunday at Murray's Tables & Tap.  Dodgion, 80, played on a host of classic albums including Wes Montgomery's Goin' Out of My Head (1966), Herbie Hancock's Speak Like a Child (1968), Bob James' Three (1976) and Gerald Wilson's New York, New Sound (2003).  He takes a bluesy solo as a member of the Thad Jones Orchestra at the 10:25 mark of the embedded video.  (Dodgion's appearances are among Joe Klopus' top picks of the week.)
