This was a wide and varied set, from a Django-inspired tune to Yoko Ono with Ornette Coleman. The special feature this week was on Freddie Hubbard, who passed away on December 29. I only played one Hubbard track, from his well-known Impulse album, The Artistry Of Freddie Hubbard, but I'll play more in the weeks and months to come.
