Soulandjazz.com Presents:
Continuum – A Journey Through Jazz
Episode 77: "St. Patrick’s Groove"

Lá Fhéile Pádraig Sona Daoibh! Which is, of course, Gaelic for “Happy St. Patrick’s Day to you all!”. To aid in your annual celebration of Celtic culture I have put together a show consisting of Irish/Celtic Jazz with elements of Fusion, Electronica & New Age.

Here it is, ready to help get your jig on:  http://t.co/3wfj57Ez

Many might be questioning the idea of “Celtic Jazz” – but it does indeed exist, and Celtic music is part of the formula that aided in the origins of jazz, and thus an important part of the Jazz Continuum. If you don’t believe me, just listen to the show wherein I’ve included a variety of musical styles and historical tidbits – and, if you still can’t see it, send an email to Scott at SoulandJazz.com so that we can discuss it . . . politely.

To that end, I have assembled some interesting Celtic jazz flavors & fusion from the Afro Celt Sound System, O’2L, Jean-Luc Ponty, Máiréad Nesbitt, Calaminus, Nightnoise, The Celtic Jazz Collective, Carrantuohill Celtic Music Group, Brian Kelly, and Bela Fleck & The Flecktones. Quite an interesting & eclectic bunch.

Ireland means a lot to me personally, and even if you have no connection whatsoever to the Emerald Isle or the culture, hopefully this trip will open you up to something unique and unexpected . . . and will provide you with something much better to celebrate than green beer.

Síochán & Sláinte,
