Garden State Sound
with Evan Toth

All jokes aside, New Jersey is a pretty great place. While it has a lot to offer as a state, it also has a rich musical history of which many people remain unaware. Everyone knows Sinatra and The Boss, but there’s much more.

This week, we continue—and conclude—our tribute and memorial for Rudy Van Gelder with some fine, clean sides—all vinyl. Included in this episode are: Milt Jackson, Ron Carter, Bob James, Wayne Shorter, Grover Washington, Jr., Wes Montgomery, Jimmy Smith, Paul Desmond, Modern Jazz Quartet, and more!

While this may mark the end of our two-part series, there is no doubt that RVG’s influence will always be heard in any thorough examination of music from the Garden State.
