Curtis Bro

This week's podcast features our guest Zaccai Curtis and the music of the Curtis Brothers. We follow the development of their latin influenced jazz from the early Insight days when the band was based on young Hartford musicians, to a more mature evolved sound of the Curtis Brothers Quartet, and finally the recently released Hard-Bop based Completion of Proof album. This latest band is comprised of some of Art Blakey's alumni (Brian Lynch, Donald Harrison, Ralph Peterson). The Blakey influence is strong, but the Zaccai's compositions maintain a subtle Latin flavor that the Curtis Brothers are so well known for. We start out the show with a Miles Davis piece, Footprints to celebrate the master's birth date.
