Arturo Gómez debuts the following recordings among others on Monday, June 21, at noon.
2 B 3 – “Jimi”
The debut of Denver’s own 2 B 3 trio, Mike Abbott-electric guitar, Jeff Jenkins-B3 organ and Mike Marlier-drums. For their initial recording they opted to pay homage to Jimi Hendrix who influenced all 3 early on in their formative years. This tribute has a nice selection of well-known and lesser-known Hendrix songs plus an original titled “Jimi”. This sessions retains the essence of Hendrix while adding jazz sensibilities to the music., very well done!
Duke Robillard-Scott Hamilton – “Swingin’ Again”
After leaving Roomful of Blues, the gifted guitarist Duke Robillard has made several jazz recordings, naturally all infused with the blues. This time out Duke enlisted the magnificent jazz tenor saxophonist, Scott Hamilton to co-lead the band through an exquisite set of jazz and blues standards. Three of the album’s ten selections are vocal, this is a true foot-tappin; and finger snappin’ delight.
Will Lyle – “LA Source Codes”
Will Lyle is a young bassist and composer starting to make his mark in the world of jazz. He is born and raised in Southern California so for his debut as a leader he chose to name his project after Los Angeles-it’s principal city. Source code is a piece of computer language that is readable by humans. Lyle sees jazz as a musical source code. Will is accompanied by 3 generations of outstanding SoCal musicians.”
“Every Monday from noon until 1pm, I debut the latest arrivals to KUVO JAZZ, often ahead of their regularly scheduled release date. In addition to the music, I’ll provide a few tidbits about the artist in particular if it’s a new or up and coming artist.” —Arturo Gómez
