New Music: Herb Alpert Music Volume 1

Aug 27, 2017

Herb Alpert has new music out on his own label, the third in a series of self produced records in recent years on which he plays and occasionally sings his favorite pieces from the Great American Songbook. Alpert played most of these sessions at his own studio with Producer and Keyboardist Jochem van der Saag and a basic Jazz acoustic trio that includes Brian Bromberg on bass on some cuts.  On Music Volume 1 there is no mistaking the timbre and tone of Alpert's horn, even as he celebrates his 83rd year. You can hear cuts from Music Volume 1 at various times during the day on Jazz 91.9 WCLK in particular during Serenade To The City, Monday through Friday from 10:00 p.m. until 2:00 a.m.

Saturday, August 26  at 7:30 a.m. on The CheckUp with Dr. Courtney Shelton on Jazz 91.9 WCLK, Dr. Shelton is joined by Pain Management Specialist Dr. Damon Kimes, for a timely discussion about an epidemic of opioid pain medication abuse in our community and our country.  People famous and unknown are dying in record numbers, addicted to narcotics originally prescribed to them for a limited, safe purpose. How many pills is too much? How hard is it to kick an opioid addiction? Are there alternatives to opioids for chronic pain treatment? Dr. Shelton and Dr. Kimes will cover these topics in an accessible, informative manner.

Sax man Mike Phillips dropped by Midday Jazz with Rivablue to talk about his music and Saturday's Wade Ford Concert Series event at Mable House Barnes Ampitheatre, which also features Loose Ends and Kindred The Family Soul. Music begins at 6pm Saturday.
