Jazz Flavours playlist for May 21, 2008

My featured artist was guitarist Stanley Jordan, who arrived on the scene in the mid-80s to much acclaim for his ability to tap out multiple melodic lines simultaneously. My “two takes on one track” feature was the classic So What from Miles Davis’ album Kind of Blue. You can listen again any time til July 2, 2008, or so.
