Saxophonist Walter Smith III has a new album on the horizon. TWIO to be released February 9 on Whirlwind Recordings, features Smith’s trio comprised of bassist Harish Raghavan and drummer Eric Harland with guest appearances by Joshua Redman and Christian McBride. “For this album, out of around twenty recorded songs, I chose nine pieces that I have a particular relationship with and have always loved playing, including some which are maybe less frequently heard,” says Smith. You can stream the first single from the album, the trio’s take on Thelonious Monk’s “Ask Me Now”, below.

As the Season of Lists bears down upon us, I decided to spend this week playing my favorite jazz songs of 2017. We'll have more to say about the year as the month creeps on, but I wanted to start things off right and have a really fun time in the on air booth making this show.

Ryan Keberle & Frank Woeste (feat. Jeff Ballard & Vincent Courtois) - 'Reverso: Suite Ravel'

In 1928 French classical composer Maurice Ravel said: “You Americans take jazz too lightly. You seem to see it as a music of little value, vulgar and ephemeral. In my point of view, it is jazz that will give rise to the national music of the United States.” Fittingly, almost 90 years later, American trombonist and composer Ryan Keberle and French pianist and composer Frank Woeste, both well-respected jazz musicians, have teamed up with French cellist Vincent Courtois and drummer and percussionist Jeff Ballard to bring us Reverso: Suite Ravel, an opus inspired by Ravel’s “Le tombeau de Couperin”, bridging the gap between modern jazz music and classical chamber music.
