|In the Groove, Jazz and Beyond|
|Mon, 18 Jun 2018 12:02:36 -0500|
The first half of this podcast is filled with Horace Silver compositions. He wrote such wonderful tunes. That is followed by Hartford’s favorite son, Dezron Douglas (bass), then new music by some jazz artists you may not know, but you should.
|Ellington and Summer|
|Sun, 10 Jun 2018 10:12:30 -0500|
A podcast that gets me psyched for summer. The highlights are in Duke Ellington’s Far East Suite, and a summer set from Louis Hayes, Joshua Redman and Shirley Horn. The podast ends with a couple of tracks from Jason Palmer who will kick off Hartford’s summer concert series beginning July 9.
|Miles and more 2018|
|Sun, 03 Jun 2018 09:07:34 -0500|
The podcast begins with a couple of Miles’ tunes to celebrate his birth date. Sets from Preminger, Rosnes and Joey Alexander are featured in this show as well. Also tracks from Cannonball and Lovano round out the podcast.

A podcast of tunes that are, in my opinion uplifting. Clifford Brown’s Joy Spring and Metheny’s First Circle are my picks to uplift. Also, music from Noah Baerman and Jen Allen helped inspire this playlist. New music from Noah Preminger, Kurt Elling and Renee Rosnes are featured here as well. Dylan covers from Elling and Ballantine are here too.

Most of this playlist features jazz artists that have been playing around the Hartford area, or will be in the coming weeks. Joey D hammers the Hammond while taking us to the ballgame. Dan Pugach’s Nonet gives Brooklyn Blues a Nawlin’s style, Casey takes us to worlds from Starwars. Curtis Bros and Ed Fast go latin style… and much more.
|Tenor Titans and more|
|Sun, 08 Apr 2018 10:25:02 -0500|
No central theme to this show, but as I peruse the selections I see some great tenor sax players; young and old. Rollins, Coleman, Preminger and Potter all represented here. Throw in some other great music from pianist Noah Baerman with his tribute to MLK, Jason Palmer’s trumpet work with Mark Turner, and Metheny’s Quartet and we have a helluva podcast.
|Sun, 01 Apr 2018 10:57:25 -0500|
A conversation with Noah Preminger on the release of three new recordings and projects. We feature his latest quartet’s release of original material, Genuinity. Also a duet project with pianist Frank Carlburg, and a pre-release listen to the Chopin Project with Rob Garcia. We also put Noah through a blindfold test (way to easy). Following that is a Shorter set, and we end the podcast with something new from singer Kurt Elling.
