Stream WICN Now

If you are a fan of guitarist Chris Standring, you won't want to miss this week's Groove Hour, Sunday 11am ET, streaming from our WICN page. We're going to take a very condensed tour of a big chunk of his releases, as shown above. This will include his latest Simple Things, still fairly fresh off the presses.

Chris Standring has been rather busy of late, producing three CDs in quick order and touring all around. One of those three CDs was something of a departure for Mr. Standring, as he played the standards along with strings.

If you are not familiar with Mr Standring, he is a modern guitarist, with a heavy influence of Wes Montgomery. 


Every track you hear from Mr. Standring during Groove Hour has some kind of groove. Between that groove and the buttery tone, the sound is infectious, sweeping you up. Don't fight the urge to get up and dance during these sets.

Mixed in with Groove Hour you'll hear some very soulful music, from artists like Nnenna Freelon and Bobby Caldwell. It's going to be a good time.


During Contemplative Hour I have a very beautiful song from saxophonist Jeff Ellwood, featuring Alan Pasqua on piano. Jeff provides a brief introduction, taken from an interview we did more than a year ago.

Contemplative Hour will take you through a lush garden of many moods. 

During New Hour you have the latest material. We happen to be in a high point in terms of the quality and quantity of music that is being released. I think that if you listen to this hour, you will be amazed at how much new material there is, that is really worth listening to.

I hope your summer is going well.
