Gregory Page's latest release "Shine, Shine, Shine" just received the 2012 San Diego Music Award Best Jazz Album and he's about to hit the road with several shows in San Diego in September and a trip down under to Australia for a tour in October. We'll chat about that and more on The New Jazz Thing with Vince Outlaw, Monday, September 3, 2012 6-8 PM PT!
Here's the video for the title track, "Shine, Shine, Shine". More links after split...
Luciana Souza has two new discs coming out, "The Book of Chet" (added to Jazz 88 last week) and "Duos III" (follow-up to the first two Grammy-nominated discs in the series, being added to Jazz 88 soon), so we will be playing music from both and chatting LIVE with her on The New Jazz Thing, Monday August 27, 2012 6-8 PM PT (she will be on in Hour 2 of The New). Really excited to be chatting with her again!
Reviews, videos, and other interview prep after the jump...
2012-08-20 Adds To The Jazz 88 Music Library: 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!
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!"

San Diego Music Awards begin right at 6PM tonight, so we'll be monitoring to see if the Jazz awards get announced before TNJT is done.
Felipe Benevides-guitar and Jay Reilly-acoustic bass of local band The Red Fox Tails will be in studio at 7:20 PM PT chatting about their new disc "Aloha" and a date at Bar Pink on Tuesday, July 31.
2012-07-30 Adds To The Jazz 88 Music Library: New discs this week from some Old hands in the Jazz scene, including John Abercrombie, Marcus Miller, and Avery Sharpe, a double disc from trumpet searcher Christian Scott, the second New Brian Bromberg disc in 2 months, and lots more!
Vocalist Sara Gazarek chats LIVE about her new 2012 release "Blossom and Bee", her July 26, 2012 performance at Anthology SD, and more on The New Jazz Thing with Vince Outlaw, Monday, July 23, 2012, 6-8 PM PT! Just to tempt you...hehe...Dan Bilawsky in AllAboutJazz.com says: "While it's a bit clichéd to say that a collection of songs can make you fall in love with a singer, the shoe fits here. Gazarek balances fancy free notions, effervescence, carefree whims, fragile emotions, precocious pondering and humor in her work, making this a highly attractive outing as a whole." Not bad ;)
