Dig the great NEW discs this week from Basile (bari-sax!), Duke music (tribute, that is), drum-man extraordinaire Sinnett, sweet sounding (and too-little recording) Luciana Souza tributing Chet Baker, and last week's TNJT guest (scroll down to hear the interview online) Brian Bromberg gets further fuzzy...plus more! Here is all debuted on The New Jazz Thing with Vince Outlaw, Monday August 20, 2012 6-8 PM PT!
Luciana not only has The Book of Chet, but Duos III also coming out next week...dig...
An interesting partnership this summer between a music venue and a private school has resulted in a summer jazz program for tween and teen jazz musicians.
Howard Berkson, owner of the food and music club Anthology here in San Diego, got the idea last year for a jazz institute and, with the help of San Diego trumpeter and educator Derek Cannon, put together a great music faculty, outlined a curriculum and set up a whole jazz program. Local top-shelf musicians were enlisted as the teaching staff, most or all of whom are music educators as well. I’m talking about — in addition to Cannon — Mike Holguin, Justin and Melonie Grinnell, Danny Green, Steve and Ella Steinberg, Andy Geib and Tommy Collins. In addition to these instrumentalists, Melonie Grinnell and Leonard Patton took charge of the two jazz singing groups.
Nominees...Claudia is playing them on The Jazz Ride Home!

Brian Bromberg (beware of the instant-on music, can't find the MUTE button!): prolific bassist has 2 New disc out right now, so we'll be dipping into both "Compared To That" and "In The Spirit of Jobim" and chatting with Brian LIVE on the ringer.
Michael Oletta reminds us: "... Bromberg's SD connection at Elarios Jazz club/ restaurant in the late 70's early 80's. He played with Joe marillo several night a week!"
