This list was cobbled together intuitively on Sunday evening
The actual broadcast coordinates might well resemble what you see here
Pat Flowers was a Fats Waller follower who was based in Detroit
Alligator Crawl was written by Thomas Waller - this version resonates wonderfully
Rosa Henderson will make a reference to "cake eaters" - coded language for effeminate men
The Norfolk Jazz Quartet was usually just billed as the Norfolk Jazz 
They also cut a lot of spirituals and gospel recordings as the Norfolk Jubilee Quartet
The arrangement used on Duke Ellington's Cotton Club Stomp may create a disturbance in your mind
Shanghai Shuffle is a masterpiece of restlessness that first erupted during the middle 1920s
Jimmy Yancey's use of bass line rhythms always suggests to me a subtle Afro-Caribbean influence
Speaking of which: Barbados might well be one of charlie Parker's most attractive melodies
For this reason I look forward to putting it across for you on Thursday evening
