The Jewel Case: Up (09-19-19)

I was going to do an "Up & Down" theme but, after compiling about 9 hours' worth of tunes in no time at all, I decided to split it up. Therefore, this week, we'll be dealing strictly with "UP"; Hank to 'Trane to Savages to Marley and gobs more will weigh in. Plus- some notable birthday celebrations and obits, and a little bit of globetrotting in the first hour, as well. That's what's up.
