In this episode taped on-location on The Jazz Cruise somewhere in the Caribbean, Lee spins a cut from singer Catherine Russell's "Bring It Back" album and he and co-host Ken Peplowski riff on the unique aspects of The Jazz Cruise, including the sometimes nutty fanaticism of the audience and the special camaraderie amongst the musicians.

In this episode taped on The Jazz Cruise, clarinetist and saxophonist Ken Peplowski riffs with Lee on how a band, even one with Thelonious Monk, can speed up against its collective will and on why Duke Ellington is not the procastinating sponge as portrayed in a recent biography and on why donkeys should be fed very carefully.  This episode sponsored by Scullers Jazz in Boston.
