An hour of mainly jazz music, taking in various styles and eras along with musical interludes from some films I watched recently. The show closes with an intended tribute to the late, great Jimmy Scott but I refer to him as Jimmy Smith (another legend entirely). I hope you enjoy what I think is a relaxing and diverse hour of music.
