Tonight...the Music of Jerry Wexler...Oh, Boy!

Asked during an interview many years before his death what he wanted inscribed on his tombstone, Wexler stated simply, "Two words...more bass!" What he got was something that simply read, "He Changed the World."

That says a lot of what Mr. Wexler was all about...tonight in honor of his birthday of January 10th (his 100th!) we will play a sliver of the sound he brought us all...thank you so very, very much!
