July 2016 Rhythm and Grooves Archives

A very big thanks to Yonci Jameson for sitting in for me while I attended the Iowa City Jazz Festival. Yonci presented classic tunes from the likes of Eric Dolphy, Sonny Rollins, Sonny Clark, Thelonious Monk, Ron Carter, Charles Mingus, and others. 

Young drummer Rodney Ruckus stopped by to talk about his group and their appearance at both The Black Dog and Jazz Central, and play a couple of recordings of his. I also played older music by Charles Earland, Bill Evans, Fathead Newman, and Milt Jackson with Ray Charles. I played resident artists Katia Cardenas and George Avaloz, as well as recent music from Ira Hill, Marquis Hill, Matt Slocum, and Chris Washburne
