The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

Don't Miss These Delicious Tracks

Air Date: 2/4/2024 streaming at 90.5 WICN 8am-12pm ET

Look at all the songs released in 2024 in the playlist below for Sunday! 

I'm particularly enjoying vocalists Stella Bass and Judy Whitmore. Both releases have superb accompaniment and really good sound engineering to match the excellent vocals. 

Jun Iida is an interesting trumpeter hailing from the west coast. 

I always like getting Danilo Perez with Claus Ogerman on the air; their CD Across The Crystal Sea is just gorgeous! Not new, but more than worthy.

Dan Dean's Vocalise is unique, interesting, and a joy to experience.

You'll hear a song with Gregory Porter during the second hour. You may not have heard it because it is on Wayne Escoffery's new album.

How about some Bill Evans with Jim Hall?

Also I have a very good youth orchestra, the JM Jazz World Orchestra. The kids these days seem to know their stuff, jazzwise that is.

The new Incognito release grooves on and on during the final hour. Don't miss Joey DeFrancesco and Joe Magnarelli for your straight-ahead groove in the final set.

Looking forward, I have several really interesting Musician's Corner segments coming up!

Yours in jazz,
