Hero Records Show #21 (2012-12-22) – As Jazzy As I Get

Dave Brubeck’s death this month, and a casual comment from the wife, resulted in a jazzy direction for this month’s show. Not too jazzy, mind! Add in some lounge classics, and a few jazz-tinged hip hop numbers at the end. There may also be some muppets, and I’m not just talking about myself… 😉
