The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

Joe Magnarelli

Air Date: 5/1/2022

I've been listening to Joe Magnarelli for some time, and I get a little excited whenever he comes out with a new CD. The latest release on which he appears is from the media company Night is Alive, called Old New Borrowed and Blue. Joining him in this project are Wayne Escoffery (tenor & alto Sax), Lonnie Plaxico (bass), and Willie Jones III (drums).

Mr. Magnarelli is inspired mainly by jazz recorded in the timeframe 1940-1960. His hero and greatest influence is Charlie Parker. 

In this edition of the Sunday Jazz Brunch,  you'll hear two tracks featuring the fine trumpeter, one from the aforementioned Night is Alive release, and one from his 2010 effort, My Old Flame.

The earlier release also features strings, and I am always interested to see how the arrangement deals with them. We'll hear a latin version of Dave Brubeck's The Duke during Brazil/World hour starting at 10am ET.

New For You

This week I introduce some very new projects. 

Orrin Evans and Kevin Eubanks have an interesting new duet CD that kicks off the show. Also during contemplative hour we have a very pretty track from Dan Costa and Randy Brecker.

Aarron Bazzell is a new tenor saxophonist that we'll hear during the second hour. Also during the hour, you'll hear the SJB premiere of  material from vocalist Cece Gable and pianist Deanna Witkowski.

Finally, during groove hour we have the latest from two very popular guitarists: Chris Standring and Norman Brown. 

Don't miss the great music coming up on May 1! And don't forget, if you miss the show, you can play it from our archives up to two weeks after it airs.

Thanks for tuning in!
