With Supreme blogger Patrick Jarenwattananon on vacation, we asked jazz music directors from around public radio to highlight songs that have been in heavy rotation at their stations. Today's pick comes from Gary Walker, music director at WBGO in Newark, N.J.

One of the tunes on the classic Miles Davis Kind Of Blue recording, "Freddie Freeloader" is given a new set of running clothes from pianist Chano Dominguez. The additional instrumentation provided by palmas (hand clapping) make this, and Dominguez's other Davis tracks on the recently released Flamenco Sketches, sparkle.
