Good things go around and come around, if we’re lucky. Many good things having to do with jazz show up on the Daily Jazz Gazette of the Mosaic Records website. Michael Cuscuna and the Mosaic staff post stories and performances of lasting value. Their latest alert concerns—for starters—Sir Charles Thompson, Johnny Hodges, Larry Young, Gerry Mulligan, Stanley Turrentine, Cootie Williams, Billie Holiday, the encounters of baritone saxophonists Nick Brignola and Pepper Adams and, I’m happy to say, Paul Desmond. Mosaic links to a 2015 David Brent Johnson Night Lights program on Indiana Public Media. I was a guest on that show. David played a cross-section of Desmond’s recordings from the 1970s, and we talked about Paul.
