Listen in on Monday, February 14, at noon when host Arturo Gómez highlights music from these new recordings and more.
Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio: “Cold As Weiss”
Since the beginning of their trajectory in 2015, this trio from Seattle has been playing feel-good-happy music with their blend of classic organ jazz, Memphis soul guitar, and funky drumming. Two of their previous recordings have been Top ten sellers on the Billboard charts. For their latest, their 4th, they not only have a new drummer, but they honored him by using his surname in the recording’s title, “Cold As Weiss” rhymes with ice for new member Daniel Weiss.
Humberto Ramírez: “Think Ahead”
Puerto Rico’s leading trumpeter has been very busy over the last several years releasing albums on his very own label about every 9 to 10 months. His brand new one has 8 songs written and arranged by Humberto Ramírez. His latest effort is perhaps the most profound session to date, chock full of provocative music but with swing and clave—Afro-Caribbean beats.
Boris Kozlov: “First Things First”
originally from Moscow where he was an award-winning pianist and bassist, Boris arrived to NYC in the mid-90s and rapidly became a first-call studio session bass player who also accompanies many established and veteran musicians in the studio and on tour. perhaps this is due to following the philosophy of his fellow bassist Charles Mingus: “In My Music, I’m trying to play the truth of what I am” Kozlov’s 2nd as a leader features splendid sidemen including Aurora’s own Rudy Royston.
