PREMIER SUNDAY on Beyond Jazz…XM 72
Join us this Sunday, October 21st, at a new, earlier time of 5 PM Eastern/2PM Pacific, for music from 6 new releases on another Premier Sunday here on Beyond Jazz. First, it’s the great Stanley Clarke, giving us everything from the funky side of things to an impressive long form piece on his new one titled “The Toys Of Men.” Then it’s the master keyboardist T. Lavitz, once again putting together an all-star band, this time featuring Dave Weckl, Frank Gambale, Jerry Goodman, John Patitiucci and Steve Morse, under the name “School Of The Arts.” Then, from the department of “Are You Kidding Me?” comes jazz versions of the songs of Elvis Presley by the great pianist Cyrus Chestnut on his new one simply titled “Cyrus Plays Elvis.” We’ll close it out with the work of three great trumpeters. First, you’ll hear the long awaited and very heartfelt reflections of New Orleans native Terence Blanchard giving us musical impressions of his thoughts concerning the destruction of the city he loves. It’s titled “A Tale Of God’s Will-A Requiem For Katrina,” followed by the second release by his fellow-New Orleanian, Christian Scott titled, “Anthem.” Lastly, it’s another great, young trumpeter, Jeremy Pelt,  who takes his electric band he calls Wired into the friendly confines of the club Smoke on New York’s upper Westside to record their new CD “Shock Value-Live @ Smoke.” So join us a littler earlier this week to hear 6 new releases beginning at 5 PM Eastern/2PM Pacific, our new time for Premier Sunday…kicking off The Sunday Specials, from XM 72, Beyond Jazz.
