Rudy Van Gelder died at 91 this week at his home in New Jersey. During his career he took audio recording to a new level. He created the Blue Note sound, a sound that was his signature. Recordings captured by Rudy took on a timeless value, an audio session with seemingly no time stamp.
Gary Walker talked with WBGO's Bob Porter, who produced 100 recordings at Van Gelder's studios with the legendary recording engineer.
Michael Cuscuna interviewed Van Gelder for the Blute Note Perfect Takes collection.

Passionate is a word I would use to describe Rhonda Hamilton and Bob Porter's approach to jazz and blues. However, after playing a round of golf with Rhonda and her husband, drummer Michael Carvin, then sitting down with Bob to talk about his beloved Red Sox, both hosts may be even more crazy about their favorite sports.
Check out my SportsJam sessions with Rhonda and Bob here.
