Jazz

Includes singer Rachel Caswell doing “Tell Him I Said Hello” from her new CD, All I Know on Strikezone Records. Strikezone specializes in creative music produced by the musicians themselves. It’s run by jazz guitarist Dave Stryker. Another recent Strikezone recording, heard extensively on SNJ, is Messin’ With Mr. T, featuring Stryker doing the music of Stanley Turrentine, with whom he played for many years. Dave Stryker grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and moved to New York City in 1980.

Several exciting new releases are featured, including “Say When” from trombonist Steve Davis in his tribute to trombone legend J.J. Johnson, “The Thompson Fields” from the Maria Schneider Orchestra, and “Jazz From Poland” with trumpeter Fortuna Maciej and his Quartet.    

 

One of the highlights this week is a cut from trumpeter Terence Blanchard’s new release Breathless, featuring his group, the E-Collective. Blanchard explores the intersection of jazz, R&B, funk and jazz fusion with his bandmates Fabian Almazan (piano), Charles Altura (guitar), Donald Ramsey (bass) and Oscar Seaton (drums).  

Saturday Night Jazz stays in the here and now by focusing almost entirely on new releases and new trends in jazz.

We find the best of it and dish it up for you.
