[JPL] "From the Plantation to the Penitentiary" - to The JazzStandard?

Marvin,

No CDs are involved - they're available as downloads only from 
www.greenleafmusic.com and there are 12 sets in all. Each of the six 
nights recordings was made available the next day!  Every note played 
during the six nights is available.   Each 60 minute set costs $7 and 
they are good quality mp3s/

I asked about a sampler for airplay and they gave me access to download 
two sets, the same two sets that got rave reviews from 4 reviewers in 
the current JazzTimes.  I'm playing a couple of pieces this weekend for 
the first time.  I don't know what you heard on KPLU, but I doubt they 
have or are playing anything by Dave Douglas.  Maybe it was a feature 
on All Things Considered from npr .

Jim
