The Dark Side

The greatest DJ ever. The King of cool. The master of the catchphrase. I trust his cookie jar is still filled to the brim with, of course, his favorite cookie. The thought that these original radio waves may still be bouncing around the universe somewhere is very comforting. Even if you do not like jazz, Cuzner will capture and captivate you with his unique presentations of the mundane; the news (or the blues, depending on your perspective) or baseball scores. He was a Jazz sage with an encyclopedic knowledge off material and artists. (Like his favorite drummer, Billy Higgins) This guy was one of a kind, a true original and a national treasure. Whoever unearthed these tapes should be knighted.

I urge you to turn off the lights, light up, relax, take a listen and the Dark Side......
