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.

Jazz Night In America with Christian McBride airs Sundays at 7:00 p.m. on Jazz 91.9 WCLK.  During the September 11 edition, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra takes us to Latin America and Spain, through the work of Duke Ellington, Charles Mingus and John Coltrane.  Excerpts from Tijuana Moods, Latin American Suite and Ole Coltrane take us to a Tijuana gift shop; and, a Spanish bullfight.   We will also get a look inside the heads of these three Jazz greats and learn what makes them some of the best storytellers Jazz has ever known.
