I'll be playing some selections rough mixes (not so rough actually!) as my Christmas gift to the listeners, and speaking of Christmas...from inside San Francisco County Jail #8 "Pod E", a live recording of my trio's annual Christmas Prison Show with the great tenor saxophonist Larry Schneider & Ronnie Smith Jr. on drums along with myself on keys playing the Christmas classic: "Have Yourself a Merry Christmas". Every year I tell the ladies "And ya' better be good!" And from the Studio 1 NDR Sessions my original blues shuffle: No X-Cess Baggage Blues, some fine playing by Lutz on one of my favorite ballads: My One and Only Love and my theme song: "Late Rent". Special thanks to Knut Benzner of NDR Radio for co-producing these recordings now heard on KYOU Radio, 1550 on the AM Dial.
