Keys And Strings Hour + New Music

May 18, 2016

Jazz Unlimited for Sunday, May 22, 2016 will be “The Keys and Strings Hour + New Music.”  The Quieter Side of Jazz will present John Lewis, a pianist and composer whose style resided at the nexus of jazz and classical music.  We will hear him in settings ranging from the blues (“Pyramid” [“Blues for Junior”]) to Joaquin Rodrigo’s “Concierto de Aranjuez.”  New music will feature a recording of our own Clark Terry and Ernie Wilkins that has a vocal from Dexter Gordon, the Brazilian Trio Da Paz, Florida pianist Lynne Arriale, Philadelphian Duane Eubanks and DE3, Sonny Rollins’ latest “Roadshows” album, some recently released 1965 Parisian performances of organist Larry Young, the Italian group the Slightly Out 5tet, Brazilian vocalist Carolina Saboya, New York percussionist Frank Cassara, Fort Worth pianist Mike Bogle, New York soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom and Los Angeles tenor saxophonist Ernie Watts.

The Slide Show has my photographs of some of the musicians heard on this show.

The Archive for this show will be available until the morning of May 30, 2016.
