In the meantime, here’s some more details about the show:
Welcome to this month's episode of Continuum - A Journey Through Jazz on SoulandJazz.com. This leg of the journey takes us through two hours of ballads & blues . . . cool, classic, beautiful, relaxing, hopeful, and bluesy of course.
Many are currently eagerly anticipating the end of winter and the beginning of spring (depending on where you live of course) – thus, there is a feeling of anticipation in the air. So, this episode attempts to capture that longing, as well as the excitement, hope & joy that surrounds the seasonal transition.
This seasonal journey begins in the 1940's with Sidney Bechet & Henry "Red" Allen . . . moves up into the 1950's & 60's with Cannonball Adderley, Toshiko Akiyoshi, Mose Allison, George Duke, Pepper Adams, Donald Byrd, Herbie Hancock, Gene Ammons & Francy Boland . . . and then jumps into current millennium and decade with Brandon Wright, Shunzo Ohno, Gaetano Partipilo, Jeff Rupert & Dirty Martini, The Astral Project, Erena Terkubo, Dave Bennett, Bill Anschell, Terri Lyne Carrington, Miho Hazama, John Sandfort, Leo Gandelman, fo/mo/deep, Timo Lassy, Spiritrio & Yuki Futami.
Two hours of bliss that can accompany just about any mood or activity - give it a try, and share with it with a friend or two or three.
