Really excited about 3 large ensemble recordings (Joel Harrison 19, Kim Richmond, Dave Ricard) among the New being added to the Jazz 88 Music Library starting next Tuesday, June 18, 2013. You can get the jump on everyone by checking out their debut on on The New Jazz Thing @Jazz88, Monday 6-8PM PT, June 17, 2013.
