The June 22 Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was the third of three shows produced in ten days, making for six shows produced in 23 days. I wanted to allow myself a hiatus of at least two weeks to focus on my girlfriend Kelly’s visit from Connecticut, then attending and documenting Smooth Jazz for Scholars in Connecticut (recaps here and here).

This show was recorded entirely on April 18 with pickups on the 19th, the first show recorded principally in one day since recording the December 15 show on November 1, the same day as annotating and talk break script drafting.

The playlist was created on April 16 with annotations and drafting of the talk break script on the 17th.

Once again, I replayed songs to make up for past mistakes: “Ear Candy” by Pieces of a Dream (January 5) and “360” by Chuck Loeb (April 13).

I had fun with “Spinnin'” by Jessy J from her latest album, Blue. It unintentionally sounded like the Hora if it were done by Les McCann. So, I worked many Jewish cultural references (I was raised Reform Jewish) into my talk break coming out of it, led by the exclamation “L’chaim (to life)!”
