Birthday tribute to JMac

This show opens with a tribute to Hartford's favorite jazz son JMac. Jackie McLean would have been 79 years old this past week. Besides being a giant in the jazz world (mentored by Charlie Parker, played with Mingus, Miles, Sonny Rollins and more) Jackie was the founder of the Artists Collective in Hartford's north end and headed the Jazz department at U of H's Hartt school of music. We also pay our respects to Hank Jones, who passed away one week ago. The show then shifts to some modern players such as guitarist Adam Rogers, pianist Jean-Michel Pilc and tenor player Noah Preminger.

New Tenor Old Tenor

Tenor saxophone is front and center on this show. We'll hear some jazz artists from today's generation of tenor players along with some grand masters of the past. Representing players on the scene today are Marcus Strickland, Jimmy Greene and Abraham Burton. Of course there are so many great players out there, that it would be impossible to hear them all on one broadcast. From the past, two of the greatest are represented here with Ben Webster and Lester Young.

May Day

This show was broadcast on May 1 which is the International Workers day, and Cannonball Adderley knew how to work it on alto sax with a rockin' version of Work Song. Another hard working alto player is Greg Abate, and we continue with two of his tracks. From there I feature a couple from Stan Getz's fine album Captain Marvel. We end the show with more great music from Tony Williams, Larry Young, Organissimo, and UCONN's own Earl MacDonald.
