Carmen Sandim: “Mini Brazilian Beasts”
Originally from São Paulo, Brazil Carmen began playing piano in her pre-teens. She moved to Boston in 1996 to attend the Berklee College of Music graduating Magna Cum Laude she moved to Washington, DC to begin her professional career. In 2005 she arrived in Boulder and obtained her Jazz Performance and Pedagogy from CU Boulder. Since then, she has recorded several excellent albums while teaching at several Front Range universities. her new recording was produced by Art Lande and dedicated to the late Ron Miles who plays on 1 track, in addition, Sandim is accompanied by Gilad Hekelsman-guitar, Greg Garrison-bass, and Colin Stranahan-drums.

Cyrus Chestnut: “My Father’s Hands”
McDonald Chestnut, Cyrus’ father passed away at 85 in May 2021 and this session is dedicated to him. Growing up in Baltimore, a young Cyrus would see his dad playing piano at home and in the church and he would just concentrate on the action of his pop’s hands on the keyboard which inspired him to follow in his dad’s footsteps and become a pianist. teaming up with Peter Washington-bass and Lewis Nash-drums, Cyrus turns in a varied songbook of standards, originals, pop covers, and 1 solo piano gospel track. Mr. Chestnut believes music should tell stories and this record is Cyrus’ story of being grateful to his father for the lessons taught.

Tom Harrell: “Oak Tree”
A perennial top ten jazz trumpeter, Tom Harrell has released over 30 recordings as a leader and appeared in over 100 others. In this album of 11 originals by Tom, he chose Ugonna Okegwo-bass and Adam Cruz-drums to accompany as they have for over 25 years. His newcomer, pianist Luis Perdomo has been with Harrell for “only” 5 years, their cohesiveness is obvious throughout this musical journey. The songs range from be-bop to funky to swing and ballads giving Perdomo the opportunity to play the Fender Rhodes on 2 tunes.

Every Monday for the past 19 years starting at Noon, I debut the latest arrivals to the KUVO Jazz library, many of them are debuted ahead of their official release date. In addition to the music comments, I’ll provide a few tidbits about the artist in particular if it’s a new or up-and-coming artist.
