Adding some great New Jazz from some big names (legend and Jazz Live San Diego alum Curtis Fuller, Branford Marsalis, Bela Fleck with Marcus Roberts, local crooner Gregory Page with a Big Band) and new names alike. We will be debuting some of these on The New Jazz Thing with Vince Outlaw on Monday, June 25, 2012 6-8 PM PT!
Coming down from The Bowl...the Hollywood Bowl and The Playboy Jazz Festival 2012, so we'll be chatting about that some, posting some pictures, talking Jazz, and digging lots of NEW on the show tonight...
Talking 2012 Playboy Jazz Festival: Pat Metheny's new one added this week has Ben Williams playing bass...he played with Christian McBride Big Band who did a tribute to Bill Cosby (his last year, after 30+, hosting PBJF)...although I don't think he played on this tune (so tenuous connection to The New this week!)...LA Times Article Recap with Ben Williams, Cosby, Lionel Loueke and more.
Jazzweek.com Jazz Chart June 18 2012: Arturo's New One at #1, Eric Reed's new Monk disc (TNJT interview?) most added...should be in Top 10 next week, PBJF 2012 The Cookers band "Believe" at #15, and lots of other stories. Going to one big Top 10 list this week, with a tune from it somewhere in there...
Steph Johnson chatting with us and playing LIVE IN STUDIO around 7:20 PM PT. She's got a new disc coming out and a gig Thursday, June 14 at Tango Del Ray, so we'll talk about that and a whole lot more!
