Scale of the Day: D# Phrygian
The D Sharp Phrygian Scale as you would find it on any conventionally tuned equal tempered instrument.
Composer birth aniversaries:
Dizzy Gillespie. Everything about Gillespie's composition and performance is just hot. Astonishing dexterity of ideas and execution. He's a true icon of American music.
Fred Hersch. So far, all I've heard of Hersch is Songs We Know: Fred Hersch and Bill Frisell. And there's plenty there for me to admire. I look forward to hearing more from this creative pianist.
