During the past several years this program has presented a wide variety of jazz, blues, and spoken word perfromances. Exploring jazz in all its colors and creative aspects while not devolving into a hodge podge of sound requires a thematic approach, a unifying thread that enables a varied, yet flowing presentation of a wide canvas of sound. To this end, each hour's magic carpet ride has featured a stylistic or linguistic theme to enable us to explore without getting lost along the way. As this is the semiquincentennial program in the series, that's right, number two hundred and fifty, we will explore a simple theme: diggin' the sounds that have held a special meaning for me over the past decades.
