The new adds this week into the Jazz 88 Music Library include a couple of tribute bands (Ellington Legacy, Spectrum Road tribute to Tony Williams), guitars (Dave Styker with Kevin Mahogany, Grant Geissman, local San Diego slinger Nate Jarrell's newest...busy dude!), Latin Jazz (Miguel Zenon's latest), and lots more! And it all gets unwrapped on The New Jazz Thing with Vince Outlaw, Monday, July 9, 2012 6-8 PM PT!
Check out the new adds for this week! Be sure to tune into tonight's New Jazz Thing as Michael Rovatsos sits in for Vince Outlaw.
Brazilian Trio – “Constelacao”
(Collective piano trio doing an open-ended style of arrangements of some rare straight-ahead Brazilian tunes). – Motema
Todd Clouser's A Love Electric – “Entre: Selections in Garage Jazz”
(Guitarist with his Love Electric group featuring players from South, Central, and North America. Session includes a wide range of edgy avant jazz grooves, delta blues, 70’s soul, funk and rock. All originals). – Royal Potato Family
Fly – “Year Of The Snake”
(Collective pianoless trio project with each member contributing original tunes. The date offers improvisations with a sound that’s closer to contemporary classical music than jazz tradition). – ECM
Fundamental – “Development”

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...
