This morning's 89.1 Jazz  program reflected the unique musical experience of Monday evening's landmark concert: "From The Cass Corridor To The World: A Celebration Of Detroit's Musical Golden Age".   Perhaps we need an occasional reminder regarding the wealth, breadth and depth of our regional talent.  The "reminder" collected by University Musical Society with assistance from pianist Geri Allen, bassist Robert Hurst and drummer Karriem Riggins and all of their special guests including living legend Marcus Belgrave will remain in my short-term and long-term memory forever.  Check out this morning's playlist for further thoughts on the show, three birthday commemorations and two worthy premieres.
