Every Saturday, David Nicholas has the mix for your gig on The Beat -- this week: a new tribute to Louis Armstrong 50 years after his passing and brand new music from Esperanza Spalding, a Blue Note at 60 look back with Jackie McLean, AND tracks from and an interview with pianist Craig Taborn on his new ECM Records album, Shadow Plays!

David Nicholas is WCMU's Music Director, and is host of both "Mosaic" and "The Beat."
