Back from Fla

Returned from Florida, refreshed and renewed to bring you more great jazz. While in Miami, we stopped in at Van Dykes. A fine restaurant and jazz club, serving up live music 7 days a week. While there we were introduced to Silvano Monasterios, a great jazz pianist and composer. His group blew us away. In this podcast we feature along with Silvano, other great artists. The show starts with Ed Thigpen, the great drummer who passed away last month. Later in the show we feature many great young talent from the New York City jazz scene.

Valentines weekend show

This show was recorded the day before Valentines day. No real theme to the show, in fact I don't even mention the Hallmark card holiday. The majority of the playlist comes from talented young musicians/composers that are having an impact on the future of jazz music. Hope you enjoy the tunes.

We were honored to have Kenny Barron and Regina Carter, currently with the Monterey Jazz Festival Tour, come to the WHUS studios for a live interview. Kenny Barron, a true grand master of jazz piano, and the wonderfully talented violinist Regina Carter speak about music and the jazz scene with me in between concerts held at University of Connecticut. We start out the show with an inspiring recording form John Coltrane and a Connecticut favorite and friend of the show, pianist Craig Hartley.
