PREMIER SUNDAY on Beyond Jazz…XM 72
If you’re brave enough and have a little time on your hands to hear some new music then join us this Sunday night,  September 30th for music from 9 new releases on another Premier Sunday here on Beyond Jazz. First, it’s the great Herbie Hancock, with another inventive project, this time taking on the songs of Joni Mitchell with the help of an all-star cast as you might imagine on his new one titled “River-The Joni Letters.” Then it’s the last in the series of three releases by Charlie Hunter and Bobby Previte, under the name Groundtruther, this time with special guest John Medeski as they give us a wild and wooley thing titled “Altitude.” Then it’s the return of English Acid Jazz pioneers  The James Taylor Quartet giving us a great, new work that revisits the wonders of Motown. It’s titled “Don’t Mess With Mr. T-JTQ Plays Motown.” Then we travel coast to coast and beyond to give you great new stuff. First, from Chicago, it’s guitarist John McLean and a host of his fellow Chicagoans on his latest release, “Better Angels.” You’ll hear a great band from Denver called Cique (pronounced SICK) with help from guitar legend John Abercrombie on their new one titled “Cique.” We’ll head to the Bay Area for the music of a hard groovin’ band from San Francisco led by drummer Wally Schnalle on their new one titled “Physics & Magic,” followed by a live set recorded at Yoshi’s in Oakland by piano legend McCoy Tyner alongside Christian McBride, Joe Lovano and Jeff “Tain” Watts on the new CD “Quartet.” If you haven’t been able to come up with the money for that trip to Africa you’ve always dreamed of, don’t worry, as we take you to the West African country of Mali, where Dee Dee Bridgewater’s latest “Red Earth” as well as Leni Stern’s “Africa,” were both recorded. We know it’s a lot to digest but we heard you were hungry so bring us your plate and we’ll fill it up with 9 new releases coming your way beginning at 10 PM Eastern/7 PM Pacific, right after THE MOJA REPORT with MARK RUFFIN on another Premier Sunday…part of The Sunday Specials, from XM 72, Beyond Jazz.
