Since this is Fathers Day, we have to begin with Song For My Father, this time a funky version from Victor Wooten. From there we pay tribute to the Black Live Matters movement and the struggle for racial justice and equality. Avery Sharpe interprets the history of the movement in his album 400. Blanchard, Louis and Croker do their tributes to the cry of "I Can't Breathe" with their original compositions. Glasper and Preminger provide more  tributes to the cause.

This is part 2 of the last WWUH radio show before temporarily shuttering for COVID-19. I thought it appropriate to feature musicians that have contributed so much to the Hartford jazz scene. I didn't have time to get to everyone, but I hope this sampling of local music plays to the HARTstrings of In The Groove Listeners here and all over the world.

This podcast highlights several jazz artists that can, in my opinion, be considered modern jazz masters. Metheny has been named and NEA Jazz Master for his groundbreaking guitar work. Saxophonists Potter and Preminger each have distinctive voices and are always exploring new musical territories. Other guitar masters represented here are Rosenwinkel and Bernstein.
