   I was recently named as one of the two faculty advisors to the
award-winning Fredonia Jazz Ensemble, along with my friend and colleague,
Bruce Johnstone (ex-Maynard Ferguson baritone saxist). Maybe that's why I've
become so conscious that there is a tremendous amount of really top-notch
big band music coming out these days, several on today's show alone. Of
these, the one which got the most listener response was Chris Walden's new
full-length with "Winter Games" and a number of other gems. The Trudy
Lynn/Calvin Owens CD arrived during the show and was immediately slapped on
the turntable without listening to it - sometimes a risky proposition, but
not this time. I trust Calvin Owens to come out with interesting material!
  Other calls came for Soetkin Collier (Belgian, I believe), Dr. Rage and
the Uppercuts (blues-rock version of a blues standard), Reza (Persian,
produced by John Densmore), Willie Hill (smooth jazz guitar), Yeshe (world
music from Australia, but with a Zimbabwean basis), Big Daddy "O" (excellent
blues covers with personalized arrangements), Mike MacArthur (great
tenor-and-organ remake of Turentine classic), Te Vaka (Polynesian delight
from New Zealand), Iron Horse (from the CD of bluegrass versions of Van
Halen songs; better than you'd expect), and Fergie MacDonald (Scottish ceili
music). To the list:
