Johnson and Freddie Hubbard. On his new release on Mack Avenue Records, Rebirth, Childs strips things down and plays most cuts on the record as part of a quartet, explicitly acknowledging his bebop roots.

New Music: Reach By Christian Sands

Apr 12, 2017
Mack Avenue Records

If progressive Jazz is your thing then you probably already know about Christian Sands. His debut record for Mack Avenue is called Reach, and features a dynamite quintet on a series of inventive, innovative pieces, mostly original but with covers of Bill Withers and classic pop gem "Somewhere Out There" done as a dreamy, timeless, Bill Evans meets Debussy way.  NPR Jazz Night In America Host Christian McBride and occasional bandmade drops in to play a bass solo on Sands' version of "Use Me." You can hear cuts from Reach on Jazz 91.9  WCLK during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.

A new re-release on Concord Music Group/Fantasy records, On A Monday Evening, offers Jazz fans a rare treat: an unreleased concert recording of The Bill Evans Trio, featuring Eddie Gomez and Eliot Zigmund. Captured live at Union Theater in  Madison, Wisconsin on Monday, November 15, 1976, this recording finds Evans at the top of his game.  The recording features performances that includes both contemporary compositions from that era, as well as his longstanding signature tunes.   You can hear cuts from On A Monday Evening on WCLK HD 2 Mainstream and on Serenade To The City,  Monday through Friday 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.
