This edition of The Jazz Spot began the musical celebration of Latino Heritage Month (September 15 - October 15) and explored the relationship between Gospel music with spirit sounds and sacred jazz in honor of Gospel Music Heritage Month. We also put the spotlight on several amazing artists who were born this week in jazz like saxophonist, Cannonball Adderley, vocalese master, Jon Hendricks and the man they called, "The Velvet Fog", the great Mel Torme. We also broke the seal on some fresh new music by bassist Esperanza Spaulding (Chamber Society Music) and progressive jazz ensemble, The Bad Plus (Never Stop).
