On Monday, May 24 at noon, host Arturo Gómez will debut the following recordings among others:
Keith Oxman-Frank Morelli – The Ox-Mo Incident”
Denver’s superb tenor saxophonist and educator delves into the world of classical music for the first time with the assistance of the noted Frank Morelli on bassoon. In the great encounter of jazz meets classical Keith recruited his longtime accompanists, Jeff Jenkins-piano, Ken Walker-bass, and Todd Reid-drums. The album’s title makes a playful reference to Walter Van Tilburg Clark’s 1940 western novel The Ox-Bow Incident.
Norah Jones – “Til We Meet Again”
Norah’s first-ever live recording is a compilation of her best performances from many different places around the world. Tour stops are, Detroit, Milan-Italy, Perpignan-France, Santa Rosa, Dana point, São Paulo, Rio, and Buenos Aires. Jones doubles on vocals and piano with Jesse Murphy-bass and Brian Blades at the drums with a few guests along the way. Most of the songs on the Blue Note Records release are from Norah’s 2019 global tour.
Keith Brown Trio – “African Ripples”
The pianist-composer-arranger is part of the gifted family of musicians from Knoxville, TN. His father is the renowned pianist Donald, and his brother Kenneth is a rapidly rising drummer on the NY scene who is a former resident of Denver. This recording by Keith features a wide array of styles based on his experience that “black music has rippled out in many directions” His guests include Russell Gunn, Camille Thurman, and others.
Every Monday beginning at Noon, 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.
