In honor of the centennial year of birth of the amazing vocalese-composer-singer Eddie Jefferson, the acclaimed vocalist Allan Harris' brand new recording is a tribute to one of his musical heroes: "The Genius of Eddie Jefferson" which features the former Jefferson touring and recording band alto saxophonist, Richie "Alto Madness" Cole. Thanks to Pat and Allan Harris, Love Productions, Jeff Moskow and Resilience Music Alliance for allowing KUVO Jazz to be the first radio station to play this soon to be released recording ahead of its scheduled issue on April 27th. Moreover, this smoking session will be KUVO Jazz's April CD of the Month, an ideal choice for Jazz Appreciation Month.
Today-Monday at 12pm MTN time, join Arturo Gómez as he hosts another edition of the weekly New Music Monday of Lunchtime on KUVO Jazz where he will play 2 tracks from this swingin' CD that is sure to hit the top of the Jazz Week chart later this Spring after it's official launching.
