NEW MUSIC: Nihil Novi By Marcus Strickland

Jun 27, 2016

Miami-born, NYC based 37 year old Tenor Saxophonist, Marcus Strickland creates dense soundscapes on his debut recording for Blue Note/Revive, entitled Nihil Novi, which is Latin for nothing new. The literal title belies the music, which is memorizing at times, reflecting modern sampling and sensibilities wrapped around straight-ahead horn playing. Strickland's Twi-Life includes his Producer and Collaborator, Bassist Me'Shell Ndege Ochello.

On the eve of the limited release of the new Miles Davis biopic Miles Ahead starring Don Cheadle, we've been checking out the incredible original motion picture soundtrack for the film. This is a project that excites us here at Jazz 91.9 WCLK because we stand on the frontline of supporting the legacy of Miles Davis every single day. One must remember that Miles Davis is probably one of the most important artists in popular music, largely due to his prescient nature.

Dr. Lonnie Smith is the ranking Jazz maestro of the Hammond B3 Organ, in particular since the loss of the great Jimmy Smith in 2005.   Dr. Lonnie Smith returns with his first release on Blue Note in 45 years, Evolution.   In his first go-round on Blue Note he cut sides with the great sax man Lou Donaldson, among others.
