Around Town

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.

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.

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.
