The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

Musician's Corner: Paul Ricci

Air Date: 12/24/2023 on 90.5 WICN 8am-12pm ET


There's a scene in one of my favorite sci-fi flicks, Forbidden Planet, where the ship's doctor tries to use the ancient Krell teaching device designed for Krell children. "My mind has been expanded, it's up there in lights..." he says, or something to that effect, and then he dies from being fed too much information for his little human brain. 

Well, I went too far just then describing one of my favorite movie scenes, and all to explain a little bit about how you will feel once you have finished listening to Paul Ricci talk about a couple of songs from Mafalda Minnozzi's new CD Natural Impression. Your mind will be expanded, and it will be up there in lights as you listen to the songs that Paul explains. It will certainly change the way you listen to those songs. 

 Tune in 10:30 ET 

to hear this edition of Musician's Corner.

But don't worry. No harm will come to you from this, in spite of the admittedly flawed movie metaphor. In fact, if it changes anything at all, it will likely change your life for the better.

Tune in on Sunday during Brazil hour to hear this Musician's Corner. Meantime, let's have a look at some pictures of Paul and vocalist Mafalda Minnozzi at WICN a few months ago.
