This year marks the 50th anniversary of Monterey Jazz Festival. Dave Brubeck played at the first, and he's back for his 14th festival appearance for the 50th. Congratulations to all involved! You can hear complete sets from many of the musicians (including Brubeck) at NPR here.
Meanwhile, here's Brubeck, with Paul Desmond on sax, performing one of their classics (in 5/4 time).

For the past year, I've done the music picks for Thursday for the nightly "Club Blue" feature at The Blue Herald. I thought it'd be nice (or at least useful to me) to collect them here. Now that Club Blue is one year old, it felt like a good time to start. I'll be cross-posting all my picks here for the future, and for this first year will also recap last year's picks — although it's a bit surprising how many videos are no longer available!
