Jazz at Lincoln Center has been webcasting many of its concerts, including some recent shows led by Wynton Marsalis and Vijay Iyer, to name just a couple. Their Livestream page is where their upcoming video streams are listed. Up next is a show from Joshua Redman and his quartet, featuring Aaron Goldberg on piano, Reuben Rogers on bass, and Gregory Hutchinson on drums. The show starts at 7pm EST this Friday, February 7th. Tune in here (after the jump) or at the Lincoln Center’s page for the event. This will be a live event, not sure if the audio or video will be archived, so set your calendar and tune in this Friday.
The tradition continues once again, though I must say it sort of snuck up on me this year. Nevertheless, I cobbled together the materials that the KRTU computer had (which I probably put maybe half of them in myself years ago) and played the hits. Happy 75th birthday, Joe Sample.
The Line-Up for 31 January 2014
"Gingerbread Boy" is a tune written by saxophone player Jimmy Heath that was played fairly heavily following its first appearance, then underwent some big changes up to the present day. But before we get to that, the beginning - the first appearance of this song was in 1964 on Jimmy Heath’s On The Trail album, where Heath was joined by Wynton Kelly on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Paul Chambers on bass, and Albert "Tootie" Heath on drums.
Keyboardist Jesse Fischer is steadily editing videos from his Head Hunters tribute show at Brooklyn's ShapeShifter Lab from back in December featuring Hancock collaborator from his Mwandishi band, Dr. Eddie Henderson. You may have already seen video of Fischer's group perform the Herbie Hancock song "You'll Know When You Get There" (and if you haven't yet, you defintely should). Now watch Fischer, Dr. Henderson, saxophonist Sly5thAve, and others perform Henderson's composition, "Sunburst", after the jump and you should probably expect more videos to come from Fischer et al. Check out "Sunburst" after the jump.
