The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

Darmon Meader

Air Date: 2/5/2023 on 90.5 WICN 8am-12pm ET

Darmon Meader's new project is called Losing My Mind. Hmm. What could that possibly be all about?

"It seemed like the right title for a project that was recorded during a global pandemic," says the vocalist, saxophonist, composer, and arranger. "Finding creative energy during such an unclear time was a challenge, but it allowed me to dive into 'back burner' ideas which lead to this collection of music."

OK, that makes sense. Now I can relate - the pandemic messed things up for just about everybody. Perhaps Losing Our Minds would have been a more accurate title!

The CD features songs with big band, quartet, and even includes one track with the New York Voices. You'll hear from the CD in each of the first three hours of the show. 


After the 2/12 show there will be a few weeks where we'll have a some replays, as I take a winter break. Included will be the Best of 2022 show that gained quite a bit of attention when it aired on New Year's Day!

Mafalda Minnozzi in Worcester February 23

You might recall last year when Mafalda Minnozzi performed live in the WICN studio during the Sunday Jazz Brunch. She's back, appearing at Mechanics Hall! Click for details.
