Modcast #238: All That Jazz

I'm getting back to my roots, to modernism's roots, getting back into the jazz groove. Jazz was of course what the very first original mods of the late 50s and 60s first cut their teeth on. Modern jazz, became cool jazz became west coast jazz became hard bop. And so on. It was all jazz, and that's what the earliest mods were all about. So, this week's show is all about jazz as well.
