Hidden Gems (AKA "Favorites")

Mark presents an episode of "Groove Shop" focusing on some Hidden Gems (AKA "Favorites") - lesser-known, virtually unknown, and a few "hidden-in-plain-sight" better-known cuts from across the jazz spectrum, from around the globe, and throughout time! Featured artists include: Joe Henderson, Richie Beirach, Richard Galliano, Jimmy McGriff, Andy Bey, Dexter Gordon, Geoff Keezer, Pharoah Sanders, Fred Hersch & Toots Thielemans, Ran Blake, Dizzy Gillespie & Stuff Smith, World Saxophone Quartet, Mal Waldron, Paul Chambers, Akiko, Woody Shaw, Pat Metheny & Ornette Coleman, Diedre Murray & Fred Hopkins, and Michel Legrand. There's something for everyone, and everything for someone - or two - or three...!
