|You might notice the subtle realignment with the blogname. If not it's okay, but it will bring into sharper focus the team effort being invested into Progressive Nights, the new sound of jazz radio (not a trademark phrase but it ought to be). Monday through Thursday, 10pm to Midnight. Chad Fox, Tony McGee, and yours truly. Let me just go ahead and preempt the suggestion of an over-the-line team called "The Progressive Knights." First fail is no vulgarity in team name. Sorry.|
- Go listen to Horace Silver right now. Anything you can get to. No need to go overboard. Just listen awhile and savor the sweet bluesy jazz.
- I keep coming back to the Index of Possibilities. Much of my programming spins out of this concept. One key to the Index is don't get too tense.
- Go listen to Eric Dolphy. Maybe you think you aren't ready. Maybe you're fooling yourself. Start with his version of "Tenderly."
Thanks for listening.
|Horace Silver was a Jazz Musician of the highest calibre. Two of the most famous Jazz Tunes ever are his. "Song For My Father" and "Senor Blues." If you're familiar with Horace Silver then you're already in your personal ritual. If, somehow, you are unfamiliar with Horace Silver we urge you to research this very creative musician. Rest in peace, Horace Silver. |
|Hometown favorite Peter Sprague will shine some of his musical genius on Jazz Live, TONIGHT. Bassist Gunnar Biggs and drummer Duncan Moore will be there, as well as vocalists Leonard Patton, Kevyn Lettau, Lisa Hightower, and Matt Falker. Sprague will galvanize this talented group into a wonderous recreation of his latest recording "Ocean In Your Eyes." Jazz 88.3 Members can reserve tickets at 619-388-3037. Please print the parking permit. City College Saville Theatre, 8pm. |
|Forgetting something, omitting something else, and maybe not enough to go around. These are the conditions which prevail.|
- Dawn of Midi tomorrow night at the Soda Bar.
- Eric Dolphy/Booker Little blazing through Status Seeking
- Christian Scott played "The Eraser" better than Thom Yorke wrote it.
Thanks for listening
|A funny thing happened on the way to Free Time. It started two hours early with Percussive Profiles!|
- Bernard "Pretty" Purdie to Elvin Jones "The Drum Thing." Then Peter Erskine for sixty minutes. E Ticket Ride right there. Some heavier lifting helps one appreciate a lighter load. I'm talking about duration.
- Larger groups in this evening's Creative Music section. 8 Bold Souls, Big Trouble, David Murray, and Keefe Jackson. Small groups allow for the space and structure but larger groups seem to swell and teeter and then all the directions that music starts flying in like a blizzard or levitation.
- The Dropper might land on your toe if you aren't ready so here's Uninvisible by Medeski Martin & Wood.
Thanks for listening
