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.

New Music: Apache By Aaron Neville

Sep 5, 2016
Tell It Records

Aaron Neville shows no sign of losing his vocal or musical edge at age 75.  His new Tell It Records release Apache comes following several releases in recent years paying homage to formative music from his past, including records taking in Soul, Gospel and, early R&B and Doo-Wop Classics.  Apache stakes out a more contemporary sound and features Neville's original songs about love, life, longing and being nice to your mom. Its tenor and tone evokes some of his great mid-period work with The Neville Brothers.

Legendary trombonist and conch shell virtuoso Steve Turre brings a monster lineup to Jazz at Lincoln Center to celebrate the 80th birthday of one of his influences, the late Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Christian McBride is your host Sunday at 7pm on WCLK for Jazz Night In America from NPR Music and our friends at WBGO/Newark.
