Saxophonist Bob Mintzer is best known as a member of the Yellowjackets, rightfully so as he has been with the popular group for over 20 years.

Arizona-based guitar great Stanley Jordan is visiting our fair state this week, performing solo at the Oriental Theater tonight and a free trio set tomorrow at the Dillon Amphitheater in Summit County. Stanley sat down with Jazz Caravan host Erik Troe yesterday and discussed his studies in the field of musical therapy and how it has evolved his relationship with Jazz music.


Back in 1998, singer Roberta Gambarini left Italy for the U.S. and a two-year scholarship at the New England Conservatory in Boston. Not long after arriving in America, the singer, who was born in Turin, entered the 1998 Thelonious Monk vocal competition and emerged as a finalist, finishing in the third spot. That encouraged her to move to New York where she emerged as a serious, new voice in the music, especially in the wake of her first U.S. album, Easy to Love.

There’s food and drink along with the music; but since I know nothing about food and drink, I’ll just stick to the sounds. This year the music comes from pianist Monty Alexander’s Harlem-Kingston Express, a group that combines a jazz group and a reggae band all in one unit.
