This is our final installment of the fun talk we had with the amazing Jim Pugh. In this show we feature some really great questions from a few of our listeners. They asked about his time with Woody Herman, Steely Dan, and a great question from Mike Kessler about how the jazz scene has changed with the proliferation of graduates from college jazz programs.

Jim tackles some big topics and we hang on for the ride.

We once again play music from his days in the Woody Herman Orchestra, some great cuts from  “The Devils Hopyard” by ‘TromBari’, and “Eight” by Walter Blanton. We end, how could we not, with a fun tune by Steely Dan.
