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.
|Believe in Spring|
|Sun, 25 Mar 2018 08:16:01 -0500|
Here in the northeast, though the calendar says it is spring, it certainly doesn’t feel that way. Here is a playlist to help bring on Springtime. These tunes are inspired by Spring, flowers and sun.
|Talking guitar with Dan Liparini|
|Sun, 18 Mar 2018 21:37:32 -0500|
Hartford guitarist Dan Liparini plays and talks with Ken about guitar and guitarists. I subject Dan to the “Blindfold Test” and we discuss lots of different guitar styles. Following the interview we hear music from Joe Henderson, Coltrane, Hal Galper, Kris and Jen Allen, and the Kevin Harris Project.

Before we get to the duets, we hear from one of my favorite JMac albums Demon’s Dance. That is followed by two sax players with Connecticut roots. Nick Biello and Noah Preminger. Both have new recordings, Biello his premier, and Preminger with plenty. Then the duets: Preminger/Carlberg, Cohen/Hersch, Haden/Metheny. Salim Washington is back, and Sameer Gupta gives us Indian/Jazz fusion.
|Blakey & Miles|
|Sun, 04 Mar 2018 11:02:46 -0500|
A set of early Blakey and Miles. They are bookended by Lovano covering Trane and a Duet featuring Metheny and Mehldau. Finally a gorgeous rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Halleluja as covered by the Manual Valera Trio.
