Annotated Playlist for Jazz In The Night Wednesday February 20, 2019

Hour 1


0:00 AM Ramsey Lewis, Nancy Wilson “Moondance” — Meant To Be

  • BIRTHDAY Wednesday, February 20 - Nancy Wilson 02/20/1937 Vocalist Chillicothe, OH

  • Recently passed, December 18, 2018

  • “When tracing the evolution of female singers from Sarah Vaughn, Dinah Washington and the great jazz vocalists of the ’40s and ’50s to the modern jazz and soul stylists of artists such as Anita Baker and Diana Krall, all roads run through Nancy Wilson. Physically beautiful and a uniquely gifted song stylist able to interpret jazz, soul and pop, Wilson stands among the greatest performers of the past 60 years.” [Remembering the incomparable Nancy Wilson, Chris Rizik, Minnesota Stateman-Recorder]


BREAK (After Tune 1): Hour 1 Intro, Blog Post and Social Media Promo


0:10 AM Jeremy Pelt “L'Appel aux Armes” — Jeremy Pelt The Artist

  • NEW RELEASE “Trumpeter-composer Jeremy Pelt examines, perhaps for the first time in jazz history, the relationship between music and sculpture on his new thoughtful and thought-provoking album, Jeremy Pelt the Artist. The rich ensemble sound of his five-movement “Rodin Suite” muses on the work of French sculptor Auguste Rodin, and leads him to conclude that “what makes a musician an artist is his ability to transcend their instrument and selflessly create an instance in which the listener is transported into another realm of consciousness.” [10 New Jazz Albums You Need To Know About: February 2019, Matt Micucci, Jazziz]


0:16 AM Gregory Porter “Miss Otis Regrets” — Nat "King" Cole & Me

  • IN CONCERT - Sunday, February 24 - Gregory Porter @ Balboa Theatre - Jazz 88.3 is proud to support San Diego Theatres as they present multi-Grammy award winning jazz vocalist, Gregory Porter, Sunday, February 24th (7PM) at Balboa Theatre. He will perform songs with his outstanding band, from his highly acclaimed five albums. Raised in California, Porter’s mother was a minister, and he cites the Bakersfield Southern Gospel sound, as well as his mother’s Nat King Cole record collection, as fundamental influences on his own sound. Porter began singing in small jazz clubs in San Diego while attending San Diego State University on a football scholarship, where he played outside linebacker. Eventually it was music that Porter chose to pursue full-time at the encouragement of local musicians including his mentor Kamau Kenyatta.


BREAK:


0:25 AM Catherine Russell “Is You Is Or Is You Ain't My Baby?” — Alone Together

  • NEW RELEASE “Alone Together, vocalist Catherine Russell’s seventh studio album as a leader, is a search for truth. Drawing on composers and lyricists of The Great American Songbook—Irving Berlin, Eddie de Lange and Jimmy Van Heusen—along with songwriters from the Swing and Rhythm & Blues eras—Nat Cole, Louis Jordan, and Al Dubin and Harry Warren—Russell invigorates their creations. At the center is Russell’s voice, and while comparisons to Ella, Billie, Sarah, and Dinah abound—while flattering—she has a sound all her own. “Blues infused jazz tunes are the ones I gravitate towards, because they enable me to freely express myself in the moment,” says Russell.” [Vocalist Catherine Russell to Release New Album “Alone Together” on March 1st, 2019 | Announces New Tour, The Urban Music Scene]

With the release of The Dream Is You, the acclaimed vocalist hopes to change that perception and shine a light on one of the most important voices in jazz history. The Dream Is You is the first all-vocal recording of Dameron’s music.” [Vanessa Rubin Returns with The Music of Tadd Dameron, Lydia Leibman Promotions]

Hodges is in top form throughout, while Edison and Webster man their spots just fine. Highlights include the sveltely swinging "Going Up" and Hodges' bluesy closer, "You Need to Rock." A must for fans of vintage combo swing.” [Duke Ellington / Johnny Hodges, Side by Side, AllMusic Review by Stephen Cook]

    • The Last of the Blue Devils - To celebrate Black History Month and continue our focus on the Golden Age of Kansas City Jazz we hope you will join us THIS FRIDAY at 7pm at the Saville Theatre for a screening of the documentary film,"The Last of the Blue Devils." During Prohibition Kansas City was a hotbed of vices and also a hotbed of jazz music. This 1979 film chronicles the last of Walter Page's Oklahoma City Blue Devils as they get together at the Union Hall to talk, sing and play. These musicians were from the Pendergast era and helped form jazz music as we know it today thanks to that "Kansas City Sound." Names like Count Basie, Big Joe Turner, Jay McShann, and Jo Jones to name a few. There will be a Q&A session immediately after the film led by station manager, Ken Poston. It is FREE for the public and no reservations are required. We hope to see you there!
