Russ Davis here, and it’s a special week of celebration on “The World’s Modern Jazz Radio Channel!” On Sunday, 26 May, the great MILES DAVIS would have been 87, and we’ll begin a week long celebration on Monday With The Masters. Listen for This Is Acid Jazz and Jazzy Jambands on Tuesday. Then, on Wednesday, we’ll take you back to a very special year, 1970, to hear Miles and some of his first, ground-breaking electric shows at England’s Isle of Wight Festival and Washington, DC’s Cellar Door on Live @ MOJALand. There has been a ton of cool, new music coming in and we’ll feature 9 of those new releases, including the latest from JOSHUA REDMAN, on THE ALL NEW MUSIC REVUE which you hear every Thursday and Sunday. We’ll give you a day filled with the greatest fusion hits of MILES DAVIS on IF IT’S FRIDAY, THIS MUST BE FUSION and follow that with a day spent in conversation with 12 of the great men who worked with MILES on Saturday’s WORDS & MUSIC. And we’ll top everything off with the replay of some of our most popular features on The Sunday Specials.
