All Jazz Radio Blog – WEDNESDAY 10th September 2014

2014 ALL JAZZ RADIO VERY SMALL LOGOJAZZ BLOG LOGOA BLOG SUPREMEAfter all the fretting yesterday things did get done, though we weren’t able to get Sebastian Scotney of London Jazz News Blog online due to time zone confusion, but next week we’ll have it all sorted. Titilayo Adedokun’s first show The J. B. F. Show went off very well I think she performed admirably. She was nervous at the start, understandably but as the show went on she settled in quite comfortably. Well-done Titilayo. What do you think? I for one am looking forward to next Tuesdays show.

Marc is especially good incorporating into his compositions the huge video image projected behind artists on the stage of the Frank Gehry-designed Pritzker Pavilion. Some fest highlights he depicts: Cecile McClorin Salvant, as powerful an actress as she is nuanced a singer, making … [Read more…]
