For my money, nothing beats Dizzy Gillespie's early vocal work, especially with folks like Slam Galliard and Babs Gonzales joining him.  Great stuff.

This week's sponsor:  MACK AVENUE

Throughout his illustrious career, saxophonist/multi-instrumentalist/composer Kenny Garrett has accumulated multiple Grammy(R) nominations, countless collaborations, and a long list of accolades from his peers. With SKETCHES OF MD, Garrett adds several historic firsts to his resume:  the first live recording of the Kenny Garrett/Pharoah Sanders pairing, Garrett's first recorded set at New York City's famed Iridium Jazz Club, and his first release on Mack Avenue. In addition to Sanders, Garrett is joined on stage by Nat Reeves on bass, Benito Gonzalez on keys and Jamire Williams on drums.


Mack Avenue is also proud to announce the signing of Grammy(R) Award-winning acoustic and electric bassist Christian McBride.  McBride, who will celebrate his 20th year in the industry in 2009, has several projects in the works for the Detroit based label, which will be unveiled in the upcoming year.

The post on Bobby Robinson prompted me to recall that early next year I will
be making a presentation of jazz, blues and r n b music to a class of senior
high school music students as a prelude to Black History Month.

Rappin n rhymin on records goes back to the 1920s and before that on the
stage and street, I have many examples of proto type rap songs by Pops, Cab,
Louis Jordan and others as well as prison songs, signifying poetry etc  Do
you have any examples of what you feel maybe a proto type rap track
