The March 31, 2021, Instrumental Invasion on WCWP marked one year since my Wednesday night premiere. The show was recorded one hour per day on February 25 and 26 with multiple pickups recorded on the second day, and still more on the morning of the 27th.

The playlist was created on February 23 with annotations continuing into the 24th, after which the script was drafted.

This was an incredibly hard show to do. I had to improvise multiple talk breaks because there wasn’t enough time to read from the lengthy scripts. The second talk break of the show was so lengthy that I had to replace “Lakeshore Cowboy” by Ramsey Lewis with “Heartsounds” by David Lanz. In future playlists, I’m expanding the back-sell length to 50 seconds. That may not even be enough.

Giant Steps” and “Fly with the Wind” were included days after acquiring John Coltrane and McCoy Tyner‘s albums of the same name. Giant Steps is the first Trane album I ever bought.

My “Giant Steps” curiosity had been piqued by several YouTube videos that either covered the song…:

…or adapted the changes into other songs:

So, it was only right that I acquaint myself with the original.

I played “El Camino Real” by David Benoit to make up for the factual error I made when I first played it last August 19.
