In Studio Interview: A Morning To Travel

Today's scheduled guest was Sam Pacetti, but he had a mishap with his truck - hey, Sam's ok, the truck will be later on today, and that's what's important. Instead, it became a morning to travel, a series of improvised journeys by way of music and words. I spent some time in the dusty old LP library pulling some jazz to add a variety of accents to the mix. If jazz warms your soul, check out The Blazing Redheads (a real discovery, smooth with Latin inflections), the classic Terrence Blanchard/Donald Harrison release (cool, 'hip' and melodic), and Jane Ira Bloom (her earlier releases give insight into her growth as a composer and player.) My guest next week will be Woodstock CT's own Liz Reed, now a music teacher in New Jersey. Liz will be having a CD release party at The Vanilla Bean in Pomfret, CT, one of our favorite venues, an easy twenty minute drive to the south. September will feature visits from Terry Kitchen, Laurie Geltman, and Dana Cooper. On a muggy morning with boomers in the air, travel seemed an apt theme to start our day here in MetroWorcester.
