New and Near

This podcast features some fine debut recordings by young jazz artists with roots in CT and MA. We start with Jen Allen's CD Pieces of Myself. Jen is a fine pianist well known to CT jazz fans. Her CD features her own compositions and arrangements with a mostly straight-ahead jazz romp with some of the areas best musicians. Josh Evan's CD shows his great chops on trumpet as well as his writing skills with a fiery sextet including two tenors. Geoff Vidal from Western Massachusetts delivers a uniquely creative sound with original compositions and some haunting arrangements with his quintet of Brooklyn based musicians. The show also features tunes from recent releases by Brooklyn bassist Michael Feinberg, post-modern jazz pianist Vijay Iyer, and vocalist Tammy Scheffer.
