Love the show
Great idea to take a classic tune and discuss at length with musical interludes. A fan!
High Quality and Intersting
Joe is interesting and sympathetic to the naive listener. This podcast's format reminds me of Revisionist History because it's really polished and organized.
For the Jazz Enthusiast
Inciteful podcast with a great format. Will continue to listen and learn about classic jazz music!
