September 16, 2008

I'm on a little later than usual with this :-) :

"Ciuri ciuri" - Michael Occhipinti (The Sicilian jazz project)
"Pretty memory" - Nat Adderley (Work song)
"Moonshine" - Dave Douglas (Moonshine)
"Awakening" - Mahavishnu Orchestra (Inner mounting flame)
"Melt down" - Lisa Hilton (Sunny day theory)
"High tea for Stephany" - Joanne Brackeen (Out and out jazz)
"And I love her" - Kevin Hays (Blue Note plays the Beatles)
"Flying" - Glenn Ferris Pentessence Quintet (X actimo!)
"Secret weapon: part II" - Blink (The epidemic of ideas)
"Chanson de rue #6" - Damian Nisenson Trio + 3 (En concert)
"Many thousands gone" - Bobby Hutcherson (Head on)
"Swing out" - Bob Mintzer Big Band (Swing out)
"Blakzilla" - Branford Marsalis Quartet (Braggtown)
"St. Louis blues' - Johnny Lyttle (Jazz for a rainy afternoon)
"Return of the prodigal son" - Stanley Turrentine (Return of the prodigal son)
"Long as you're living" - Elizabeth Shepherd (Parkdale)
"Maracatu-too" - Stan Getz with guest artist Laurinda Almeida (Stan Getz with guest artist Laurinda Almeida)
"The 3/4 tune" - The Peter Evans Quartet (The Peter Evans Quartet)
"74 miles away" - Cannonball Adderley (The best of Cannonball Adderley: The Capitol years)
"Electoral college" - Adam Niewood & His Rabble Rousers (Epic journey)
"Little jump" - Terri Lynne Carrington (Jazz is a spirit)
"La belle affaire" - L'Orkestra Des Pas Perdus (Project 9)

This was a fun show with a fairly varied setlist. It marked a number of first appearances, including both Adderley brothers (Julian "Cannonball" and Nat) as well as Stan Getz (with a pretty cool tune). Perhaps my fave tune this week is "Many thousands gone" by Bobby Hutcherson; very much 1971, kind of experimental, somewhat spacey jazz.

I'm out of town for meetings and vacation for most of the next few weeks and won't be back on air until October 14. In the meantime, Philip from Morning Joy and Stewart from Pound Cake Jazz will more than ably take over Breaking The Tethers in my absence (Philip twice and Stewart once). I am in their debt.
