Alyn Shipton's selection of jazz requests features music with a summer theme, including Dave Brubeck and Machito's Afro-Cubans. Plus Eric Dolphy, George Lewis and Johnny Griffin.

The sound of summer is reflected in this week's selection of listeners' requests. Alyn Shipton plays summery themes from Dave Brubeck and Machito's Afro-Cubans. There's also a memory of Eric Dolphy, and live concert tracks from two very different reed players: New Orleans clarinettist George Lewis and hard bop tenor saxophonist Johnny Griffin.
