Miles Davis and A Trio of Birthdays

Miles-SmilingThis is another “5th Wednesday of the month” show. WOMR has alternating DJ’s for Wednesdays on weeks 1 & 3 and 2 & 4 of the month, but no one permanently on the schedule for the 5th Wednesday. I’ve enjoyed taking these 5th Wednesdays and playing jazz from my collection.

To commemorate the release of the new bio-pic “Miles Ahead” as well as a tip I heard that the next Miles Davis bootleg series collection will feature recordings from the “Miles Smiles” era, the first hour of this Omnijazz Omnibus show featured songs from “Miles Smiles” – some from the album, some played live, and some performed by other musicians.

The second hour of the show celebrated the March 30 birthdays of Norah Jones, Astrud Gilberto, and Marvin Pontiac.

Note on the recording: I forgot to start my recorder at the beginning of the show so I had to grab the beginning of this archive from the online archives at and there seem to have been a few hiccups.
