Love

This pre-Valentines Day special features jazz tunes inspired by LOVE. Not a lot of typical sappy love songs in this set, but some hard-driving emotional compositions. We start with some a great tunes from the 50's performed by Jackie McLean and Lester Young, eventually breaking out into newer ground, with some soulful music by Mulgrew Miller, Aretha Franklin and Kevin Mahogany. We switch over to some fusion guitar with Mike Stern and Joe Beck. We finish this lovely show with one of my favorite romantic jazz ballads by Jimmy Greene entitled Love In Action.

    Great selection, as usual, thanks!

    I got the feeling with the Mike Stern piece to hear parts of “I cant help falling in love” from Elvis Presley. anyone else?
