Air Date: 9/26/2021

Every now and then a song comes along that is extremely well-suited for your Contemplative Hour, the first hour of the show. Such is the case with Daybreak, the title song of the latest CD from Susan Krebs and her band Mixed Remotions. 

The track opens with a delicious, gentle conversation between vibes, acoustic guitar, and percussion. In particular, Jerry Kalaf's light touch on vibes elevates the sound to the point that it competes, in my mind, for top prize in the 'best chill music' category. The instrumental accompaniment is exceptional for its ability to capture and re-create the life experience of chilling.

You'll hear the track early during the first hour of the show.

Antonio Adolfo's New CD

I am always so happy to get a new CD in from Antonio Adolfo. It seems like the last one (Bruma, a celebration of Milton Nascimento) just came out. 

I guess that is just how time seems to by flying by. Now we have his new one, Jobim Forever.

Here's why I like the music of Antonio Adolfo: 

Firstly, it is great jazz. He is either playing material from great, mostly Brazilian, composers, or he is playing his own superb original works. 

Second, the musicanship is first rate, and he often employs many musicians for each release. 

Third, I can play his tracks in any of the first three hours of the show. That's versatility!

So we'll be enjoying plenty of this new release together on the Sunday Jazz Brunch.


Steve Million

Steve Million has two new CDs. Jazzwords featuring Sarah Marie Young is unique, very original. One of the tracks, The Way Home, is just lovely. 

His other CD is called What I Meant To Say, and we just got that one in. But I can tell you it has several very nice tracks on it, that we'll be getting to over the next few shows.

Marion Meadows

A few weeks ago we got in a new single from Marion Meadows, Twice as Nice. We just got the full CD in, and it is vintage Meadows. A great groove sound from the saxophonist.


Summer comes to a rainy close here in the Boston area. I hope you made good memories during the summer. Be healthy.
