We continue our exploration of music that resides simultaneously in the past, present, and future. This time we focus on the present with an exceptional cut that was "new" over three decades ago reexamining a tune that was more than two decades old at the time and still sounding contemporary today. Without its rich history one cannot play jazz in the present, nor see the future that is coming. In this hour, we will dig the fresh, and the freshly reinterpreted for a swingin' good time.
