While digital music and streaming services makes music almost too easy to find, you can still feel that excitement of discovering great albums at used record stores. Mystery Train is a great one in Glouster MA that I always hit up when I am in the area. Recently I picked up some monster CD’s there. I feature those on this show. You’ll hear from Sonny Rollins, Pat Metheny, Ella and Louis, and Miles. We were in the North Shore area to see a concert at the beautiful Shaulin Lui Performance Center in Rockport Mass to see The Bad Plus with Joshua Redman, so I play some of their music too.
