Brilliant!  I learned something. I loved your well crafted presentation
of Zawinul.  I encourage the rest of the panel to check it out.  

I too have spoken to Zawinul on several occasions over the years and
found him to be earthy and engaging.  I haven't posted anything about
Zawinul on JPL but I have read all of your heartfelt comments about him.
He was a giant in life and generous with his time.  His music should
insure his immortality beyond his life.  I too, will miss him.

I did an eight hour length shows on Wayne Shorter based on Michelle
Mercer's book, Footprints: The Life and Music Of Wayne Shorter" and one
of those hours was spent with Zawinul.  It will be available on the WCPN
website shortly.

This Week's JPL Sponsor: Barnstorm Productions - Charles Gatschet - STEP

Guitarist Charles Gatschet takes you on a musical journey from Bebop to
Brazil on his latest release STEP LIGHTLY. Growing up in Kansas City
afforded Charles the opportunity to work with such jazz notables as
Claude ''Fiddler'' Williams, Bobby Watson, Carmell Jones and many others
who have made an impact on the K.C. jazz scene. With a stellar band
featuring Ali Ryerson, Greg Gisbert, Ken Walker, Mark Simon, Eric
Gunnison and Paul Romaine, Gatschet delivers an array of beautiful
tunes, half of which are his own.  Quoting from Dr. Herb Wong's liner
notes: ''Jazz guitarist-composer Charles Gatschet's aesthetic backdrop
and the music on STEP LIGHTLY, indeed, ignite reasons to step lively
with felicity of Charles' mission in jazz.''
