WCLK Pick of The Week-Chick Corea Trio 'Trilogy'

Oct 7, 2014

WCLK PD Aaron Cohen has added the latest release from Chick Corea's Trio, featuring Christian McBride and Brian Blade.  Listen for it overnight and on WCLK's Mainstream Jazz Stream.

From  Chick Corea.com: Trilogy is a triple-CD set recorded live around the world with Chick’s spectacularly virtuosic trio featuring bassist Christian McBride and drummer Brian Blade. Christian and Brian are both star leaders in their own right (and previously the rhythmic backbone in Corea’s Five Peace Band).

Ann Hampton Callaway's new release From Sassy To Divine-The Sarah Vaughn Project, recorded live at Dizzy's Club Coca Cola, is one of WCLK Program Director and Serenade To The City Host Aaron Cohen's favorite new releases.  This homage to the late great Sarah Vaughn is a first rate set, featuring a small combo and an involved audience.

Listen for various takes on classic vocal tunes such A Night In Tunisia, Misty, Someone To Watch Over Me, and others.

Houston-born drummer extraordinaire Michael Carvin has played with a who's who of jazz greats, from Freddie Hubbard to Pharoah Sanders.  His latest project features a razor-sharp quartet including Keith Loftis on tenor sax, pianist Yakoi Ikawa and Jansen Cinco.  They play propulsive straight ahead versions of such jazz classics as Monk's In Walked Bud and Miles' So What.  The Michael Carvin Experience is WCLK PD Aaron Cohen's pick of the week, and you will hear it at various times late night and overnight on Atlanta's Jazz Station on Serenade To The City.

Joshua Redman has worked his way from young lion to jazz master, one of the true saxophone innovators of 21st Century jazz music.  On his latest release Trios Live, he meshes sax, bass and drums in vivid takes of everything from Kurt Weill's Moritat(Mack The Knife) to Monk's Trinkle Tinkle.

WCLK Program Director Aaron Cohen is airing out this release overnights on Serenade To The City on Atlanta's Jazz Station.

WCLK PD and Serenade To The City Host Aaron Cohen is adding cuts from the new release from Dr. John, an all star tribute to the music of Louis Armstrong.  Trumpet players on this record include Nicholas Payton, Terence Blanchard, and Arturo Sandoval.
