The Major Scale


May 22, 2019

The Major Scale gets into a sentimental mood as we weave together the melodic with a sense of the melancholic, looking back at the legacies of a trio of musical greats.

 

The wild and dark life of Chet Baker gets some reflection as we ponder his music and his mysterious demise that happened one fateful night over 30 years ago in Amsterdam. Next is Grady Tate, prolific drummer and an elegant soul singer. Countless are his sessions, eternal is his talent, and immortal the music he left us. Lastly is Bob Dorough, one of the most idiosyncratic voices to grace the field of music – be it with his own work, with Miles Davis, interpreting Charlie Parker, or making School House Rock.
