April 2015 Rhythm and Grooves Archives

A mix of music from over the years, including new music from Steve Gadd, Jovan Alexandre, Javier Vercher, Phill Fest, and Dean Magraw & Erick Kamau Gravatt, I played some slightly older tunes from Jon Hendricks, Charmin Michelle, and some classics from George Benson, Red Rodney, Stan Getz, and Jackie McClean.

Reedman Doug Little stopped by to talk about Charanga Tropical and their Kickstarter project to go to Havana, where they've been invited to participate in the Danzon festival. I also played music from Richard Groove Homes, Sweet Lu Olutosin, David Murray's Cuban Ensemble, Billie Holiday, Jose James, Anat Cohen, and Arturo Sandoval.

Another day with a mix of new music (last 20 years) and older music (20-60 years). Newer music from Juli Wood, JOe Lovano & Dave  Douglas, Emily Bear, James Buckley, Chris Washburne, Dutch Jazz Orchestra, Bobby Kapp, Danilo Perez, and David Sanborn. Older music from Miles, Jackie McLean, Horace Silver, Frank Sinatra, and Tony Bennett.
