|Back from vacation|

Refreshed from a two week vacation, I have assembled a playlist to satisfy any jazz lover. Beginning with the new Trane release, then a couple from Donald Byrd’s Royal Flush. We follow with a more contemporary trumpeter, Jason Palmer with an extended piece. We pay homage to Henry Butler on his passing. Then new music from Geoffry Keezer, and a collaboration of young NYC musicians, New Faces. The podcast closes with vocalist Rene Marie.

I’ve been busy working with the Hartford Jazz Society on producing 6 great summer concerts in the park. I reference this frequently during this podcast. More information can be seen at www.hartfordjazzsociety.com. Concurrerntly with our concert series is the Emerging Artist Showcase. Please look for the links to this competition and view these videos and cast a vote.
|Jason Palmer and Monday Night Jazz|

Trumpeter Jason Palmer speaks with us prior to his performance at the opening concert of Monday Night Jazz. Some hot music from Dr. Lonnie Smith is up next. He also will headline our concert series the following week. Also in this episode is Chick with strings, Miles and something “new” from Trane.

This podcast celebrates the release of John Coltrane’s lost album release. The show is bookended by tracks from his Both Directions At Once CD. In between we will hear from Wayne Shorter, young saxophonist Mike Casey and baritone Lauren Sevian. Somewhere in the middle are pianists, master Chick Cora and a talented Theo Hill.
|Jazz Rock Jazz Funk|
|Sun, 24 Jun 2018 10:32:10 -0500|
The title says it all. Joe Henderson starts it off. Then a Jimmy Hendrix set. Back to jazz including some new music from Buster. Then finish it with a surprising funky tune from Marcus M.

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.

This show features sets of vocals, saxophone and piano. Rene Marie and Van Morrison start things off. Next up, tenor sax players Henderson, Rollins, Potter and Getz. The show concludes with pianists Theo Hill, Benito Gonzalez and Kenny Barron. That makes for a pretty nice jazz podcast. Enjoy.
