While this podcast does not have a central theme, there is a lot of great music here. The set starts off with some great women jazz artists. Regina Carter's rhythmic African beats and soaring violin begins the program. That is followed by Esperanza Spalding's unique arrangement fusing jazz and classical music in a unique and beautiful way. Christine Jensen finishes the set with a swinging hard bop quartet and a smokin' sax solo. The gem of the program is up next with an early Chick Corea album Inner Space. Dig solos by Joe Farrell, Woody Shaw and Chick in this fine ensemble. I also feature some great sax players currently active in the New York City scene, Mike DiRubbo, JD Allen, Albert Rivera and Stacy Dillard. Other horn players like Brad and Elliot Mason (Trumpet, Trombone) have a new CD that deserve your attention.
