Atlanta-based Jazz Rennaissance Man Joe Gransden has a new record out on Cafe 290 Records, Go Getta. The title track comes courtesy of Friend of Jazz 91.9 WCLK Kipper Jones, and features a solo turn from Kenny G.
Gransden has wanted to lead his own big band since his youthful days as fourth trumpet in the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. On Go Getta he brings together his big band, seen live locally by many ATL Jazz fans, for a tight, swinging set of 14 songs.
You can hear cuts from Go Getta on WCLK at various times in particular during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.
