The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

McCoy Tyner's Twilight Mist

Air Date: 4/2/2023 on 90.5 WICN 8am-12pm ET

I first heard the song Twilight Mist on Lee Morgan's release Tom Cat. What a pretty song it was then, and still is. Whether it is played by McCoy Tyner in 1964 or by McCoy Tyner in 1992. 

The release Tom Cat has an interesting history.  It was recorded in 1964 and included Mr. Tyner in the band led by trumpeter Lee Morgan. But this LP was not released by Blue Note until 1980! I was truly surprised to hear that, as this is a very fine LP, exemplifying the swaggering, latin-tinged playing of the trumpeter. However, another Lee Morgan album was released just before this one was ready to go, and that album was his famous The Sidewinder. The Sidewinder became by far Mr. Morgan's most popular release, and as a result, release of Tom Cat was shelved and another project was started to replicate the success of The Sidewinder.

Meanwhile, Twilight Mist, written by McCoy Tyner, is the only ballad on either album. How interesting, then, to hear it played with Mr. Tyner as an accompianist in 1964 and also as the lead in 1992. Check it out during the first hour of the Sunday Jazz Brunch.

Alan Broadbent Live in Studio 50

On April 16 be sure to keep the dial set to 90.5 FM, or don't let the stream from break up, because at 11am ET on that date we'll have a very special guest: Alan Broadbent and his trio. The Trio will be fresh off their performance in Boston (at Sculler's Jazz Club on April 15). As you may know, Mr. Broadbent is the winner of two Grammy Awards, and you can hear his superb music regularly on The Sunday Jazz Brunch.

Musician's Corner 

During this show we have another installment of the new Musician's Corner segment. This week we'll hear from Paul Ricci, music director and guitarist for vocalist Mafalda Minnozzi. Tune in during Brazil/World Jazz Hour.

Here's to keeping this great music alive. đŸč
