    Hi Jim,

    I just listened to your Radio Detective Hour #106. Great show — thank you for putting it together. Question: Can you tell me the name of the trumpet quartet and the tune that was played under your show commentary? I’d like to find the album if you can steer me where to look.

    Cheers!

    Hi Mike,
    That is Chet Baker doing “Autumn in New York” from his “Chet for Lovers” album. Great album if you enjoy cool jazz.
