Jazz à la Mode is being pre-empted for both conventions, so I'm grabbing an
unanticipated 2nd summer vacation; guess which week I've elected to not sit
on the board?
"Jazz à la Mode"

WFCR 88.5 FM

> This week's sponsor: Resonance Records
> GOING FOR ADDS NOW:
> Resonance Records has re-serviced MIKE GARSON's CONVERSATIONS WITH MY
> FAMILY [ ****1/2 Downbeat '' A glowing achievement''] stickered with some
> fine jazz tracks. This is our first official solicitation for adds (due to
> Reference Recordings having a title out in the spring which we did not
> want to create any conflict with). GARSON is a piano and keyboard
> wizard, who has worked with Stan Getz, Stanley Clarke, his band Freeflight
> and many others. There are some gorgeous tracks ready for airplay. As a
> bonus, the DVD features Peter Erskine and the sadly, late great LA bass
> player, Dave Carpenter + a preview of Resonance artist Lori Bell on flute.
> Resonance has just released Pittsburgh native CATHY ROCCO's debut YOU'RE
> GONNA HEAR FROM ME. Check out her take on ''Autumn Leaves'', ''Come Rain
> or Shine'' and ''Give Me One Reason'' (with a guest turn on organ from
> John Beasley). ROCCO is not some newbie-want-to-be a-jazz-singer. ''She
> is a formidable swinger'' Will Friedwald, New York Sun, from the liner
> notes, which are worth a read. Cathy is supported by Tamir Hendelman on
> piano, Dave Carpenter on bass and Vic Stevens on drums. CATHY ROCCO has a
> big voice and a keen sense of drama.
> ...and if you haven't yet added ANDREAS OBERG MY FAVORITE GUITARS, why
> not? as fine a guitar debut as jazz has seen this year!
> Was curious...anyone having their show put on hold because of NPR's two
> week coverage of the conventions? Mine will be...That's a lot of music not
> heard in that period but what concerns me it's not far from the fall
> fundraiser. Hopefully it won't affect it much.
