Soulandjazz.com Presents:
Continuum – A Journey Through Jazz
Episode 47: Joy Spring

Hosted & Produced by J. Scott Fugate, “The Jazz Evangelist” 

This show marks my first anniversary at SoulandJazz.com, so I’ve filled this episode with a variety of elements & styles explored on this journey through jazz. It’s entitled ‘Joy Spring’ . . . because, well it’s spring and that’s a rather joyful thing on which to focus.

So, go ye therefore and download it: http://bit.ly/fBM0bQ

To celebrate these warmer days, brighter colors & rebirth of nature – Jazz legends Clifford Brown, Max Roach, and Art Blakey swing hard bop homages to spring … Ernest EC3 Coleman provides a touch of Jobim from his brand new CD… Pat Metheny promises ‘Better Days Ahead’… Khari Simmons, & the Brazilian Groove Band heat things up with some funky Brazilian rhythms . . . Quasimode presents something new, jazzy, and hopeful out of Japan . . . the Heritage Orchestra fills the sky with sounds of sweet Soul . . . and the Japanese Jazz pianist Hiromi plays us out with Joy.

Like the diversity of flora & fauna in spring, this show offers a potpourri of sound & style – from straight ahead hard bop, to Latin & Brazilian rhythms, to funk, groove, soul and back again. All in all, it’s fantastic, joyful music that will most certainly put a swing in your step and bring out the spring in your soul.

As always, I love to hear from you! Keeps those letters coming with your comments and requests to Scott at SoulandJazz.com.
