Uplifting

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.

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.

Before we get to the duets, we hear from one of my favorite JMac albums Demon's Dance. That is followed by two sax players with Connecticut roots. Nick Biello and Noah Preminger. Both have new recordings, Biello his premier, and Preminger with plenty. Then the duets: Preminger/Carlberg, Cohen/Hersch, Haden/Metheny. Salim Washington is back, and Sameer Gupta gives us Indian/Jazz fusion.
