Can't wait to hit at eight, sharing the music with YOU is my favorite thing to DO! On this evening's Night Beat:

Happy Birthday to Blue Mitchell, Terence Blanchard, Stephen Scott, and the ageless one, the Force of Nature himself, Roy (play-me-some-jazz-man) Haynes (right-now)! We could play 2 hours of music on every one of those cats (Hint: "Trio Music"), but instead we'll squeeze them all, and much more, into just the 2 hours. That's 8-10 Mountain DAYLIGHT Time. Don't Miss It!
