Seeds

This podcast features the new release from Kenny Garrett, Seeds from the Underground. I was fortunate to attend a recent performance of Mr. Garrett's and I can say that this release is indicative of the intensity and virtuosity that he, and his quintet, display in concert. Also, I recently re-discovered one of Weather Reports original albums which I share with you here. Some very upbeat songs follow from Esperanza's new album and a re-release of an older album from Hubert Laws. Finally, Greg Abate lays us onto some new tracks he recently recorded with sax great Phil Woods and we play one of them here.

March 31 Broadcast

Much of this show is requests from some of our friends and listeners as well as some of my favorites. Claire asked to hear the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Jimmy Greene, Whitney requested Sarah Vaughan, and Bryan has been wanting a Joe Henderson set. I really dug the Henderson tracks and I think there will be more of that to come in the following weeks. The podcast concludes with a gorgeous intense ballad from Branford Marsalis that I think you will enjoy.
