Trane and Miles

Let's start with some classic modern jazz with two of the most influential jazz artists of all time. We'll start with the John Coltrane Quartet, and Trane's collaboration with MIlt Jackson. Miles follows with his muted horn on Bye Bye Blackbird. An assembly of modern NYC cats called the Next Collective lays down a cool vibe before Tineke Postma takes the podcast to a laid back ending.

NYC Jazz

There is nothing I enjoy more than hearing live jazz music. This show re-lives some of the great music I heard last week in NYC Jazz clubs and on stage at U of CT. From our NYC adventure, we heard the Ravi Coltrane Quartet and the Jimmy Greene Quartet. At UCONN, Earl MacDonald and his Creative Opportunity Workshop. We also hear from the musicians that accompanied these artists such as Dezron Douglas, Johnathan Blake, Renee Rosnes (The Drummonds) and John Pattitucci.
