New Music: Color Theory By Josh Lawrence

Jul 9, 2017

Philadelphia's Josh Lawrence is one of Jazz music's pre-eminent young composers, leading the Fresh Cut Orchestra and gigging in smaller combos at Jazz clubs throughout the world.  On his new release Color Theory (on Posi-Tone Records), he plays with a smaller combo that includes:   Keyboardist Adam Faulk; Pianist Orrin Evans; Alto Saxophonist Caleb Curtis; and, Lawrence on trumpet.   The songs are original compositions by Lawrence and reflect the moods of various colors while expressing the finest in Straight-Ahead modern Jazz.  You can hear cuts from Color Theory at various times on Jazz 91.9 WCLK and WCLK HD2 in particular during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. 

Support for Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by our friend Sheryl Sellaway, author of Praising You Changes Me, a book of true stories about the events in the life of a business traveler--just trying to get from one place to another. The journey is packed with busy airports, hotel rooms, car trips, lost items, crowded flights and opportunities to share the gospel and prayer time in some very busy places. Praising You Changes Me is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and bookstores everywhere.

Listen to The Local Take on WCLK Saturday morning at 7am as we continue to explore problems and solutions with the juvenile justice system. This week I talk with Pamela Perkins Carn of the Interfaith Children's Movement about two bills that passed in the last legislative session.

Join me for the Sunday,  Jazz Suite on  Jazz 91.9 WCLK from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. as we honor the life and music of Geri Allen.  It was such an honor to have met Geri and share a little "girl talk" along with a multi-generational group of fans.  We were greeting, hugging and smiling in "awe" at the pretty, soft spoken, kind and humble powerhouse, Geri Allen. 

A Pianist/Composer, Bandleader, Educator and Guggenheim Fellow, Allen was in Atlanta, Georgia in 2008, to perform at Sisters Chapel on the campus of Spelman College with longtime musician, collaborator,  Jazz Vocalist and friend Carmen Lundy.
