  1. Did you know soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom was the first musician commissioned by the NASA Art Program to create three original compositions (1989) and has a minor planet named after her (6083 Janeirabloom)? Did you know this Yale graduate (1977) and tenured music professor at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music is married to the actor/director Joe Grifasi? Yeah man, she’s way hip. Friday night’s edition of Jazz From Blue Lake featured Jane Ira Bloom’s music in the first part of each hour and is at Blue Lake Public Radio’s on-demand page until tomorrow. (photo of Bloom by Erika Kapin). www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  2. Who breaks singles of instrumental music on Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone? Donny McCaslin. Since saxophonist Donny McCaslin's band became "David Bowie's last band" for the album "Blackstar," McCaslin recorded and released "Beyond Now" in 2016 and played 80 concerts all over the world since. Jazz From Blue Lake features McCaslin's music in the first part of each hour found here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  3. Since 1954 the Newport Jazz Festival has welcomed some of the music’s greatest performers to one of New England’s premier resort communities, and fortunately for jazz fans, many of those great festival sets were recorded down through the years, as you can hear on Jazz From Blue Lake found here: www.bluelak.org/ondemand. Please join us for the music of Louis Armstrong, Jack Teagarden, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Miles Davis and John Coltrane, among others, recorded at Newport. (photo by Kevin R. Mason) #BlueLakePublicRadio
  4. Do you remember guitarist Johnny Smith? Please join Blue Lake Public Radio in appreciation of the musician who elevated the skill level played on the instrument while remaining a story teller with a listenable sound, and lovely chord-melody arrangements. Click on Jazz From Blue Lake here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  5. When Chick Corea appeared with his Vigil band at St. Cecilia Music Center in 2014 there came a point in the concert where he turned to the audience and said, “We’re just going to play for a while now. You’re welcome to stay.” And the inference was clear: the band was going to stretch out, play long, winding, improvised arrangements and we were welcome to stay for the ride. But if we were expecting a pithy medley of Chick’s hits, well...On his new album “Chinese Butterfly,” which celebrates a 50 year musical collaboration with drummer Steve Gadd, the same aesthetic is in play: stretch. As we heard last night on Jazz From Blue Lake, found here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand.
  6. Jazz From Blue Lake’s broadcast featuring multi-instrumentalist Rahsaan Roland Kirk is heard today at our on-demand page www.bluelake.org/ondemand . From his roots in Ohio, and his first recording for Cincinnati’s King Record label, we explored Kirk’s recording career, ending up in our 5th hour on stage with Charles Mingus at Carnegie Hall. Here’s hoping you’ll join us.
  7. On May 7, 1968 Ornette Coleman completed the recording sessions for two Blue Note albums, “New York Is Now” and “Love Call.” With his boyhood friend Dewey Redman on tenor saxophone and a pocketful of original music, Coleman invited John Coltrane’s sidemen, bassist Jimmy Garrison and drummer Elvin Jones, into the studio where “Broad Way Blues,” “Back Home” and “Check Out Time” were recorded, as we heard last night during “The Jazz Retrospective” segments of “Jazz From Blue Lake” which you can hear right now today at our on-demand page www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  8. Please join Blue Lake Public Radio this Saturday morning for a special broadcast from the performance studio featuring the duo “Something Holy.” The Transylvanian expatriate pianist Lucian Ban synthesizes a wide range of playing styles, from Abdullah Ibrahim, Keith Jarrett and Cecil Taylor as a pianist to Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn and Ornette Coleman as a composer. He’s joined by Detroit area baritone saxophonist/bass clarinetist Alexander Harding, a good friend of former Blue Laker James Carter, in wildly expressive spontaneous musical conversations. Jazz From Blue Lake with your host Lazaro Vega airs Saturday morning from 7 – 10 a.m. over WBLV 90.3/WBLU 88.9 and www.bluelake.org/listen. #BlueLakePublicRadio
  9. For 30 years pianist Keith Jarrett’s “Standards Trio” used compositions from the Great American Songbook as a starting point for exceptional improvisational music, as you’ll hear in a special Valentine’s evening broadcast of “Jazz From Blue Lake,” featuring Jarrett with bassist Gary Peacock and drummer Jack DeJohnette. We’ll even include “love songs” by Albert Ayler during “Out on Blue Lake” in the 3rd hour. Jazz From Blue Lake is found at www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  10. Wardell Gray swung. The Oklahoma born, Detroit-bred tenor saxophonist may have played Grand Rapids in the 1940’s as a member of the Benny Carew Band before taking off for the big time Earl Hines Orchestra in Chicago. Though considered a bebop stylist, especially for his post-WWII work with Dexter Gordon, Charlie Parker and Howard McGhee, Gray recorded with Benny Goodman and Count Basie, those giants of swing. Blue Lake Public Radio spun Gray's recordings last night during Jazz From Blue Lake found here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  11. From his early work with the beboppers to the great band he co-led with Clifford Brown, to his civil right music, to recordings with avant gardists to his percussion ensemble and solo drums, Jazz From Blue Lake touched on the music of Max Roach last evening. Jazz From Blue Lake is found here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  12. Trombonist/cornetist Dan Barrett’s music was heard last night on Jazz From Blue Lake. That version of “Perdido” where the Howard Alden/Dan Barrett Quintet transcribed Flip Phillips famous solo on the Ellington classic and then played it together as a band? Still knocks me out. Barrett grew up in California in the 1970’s hanging with all the aging traditional New Orleans transplants, and I read he played at Kid Ory’s funeral. Was a kick to swing the night away. The program is available today through Blue Lake’s on demand page. http://www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  13. Jazz From Blue Lake remembered the south side Chicago tenor saxophonist Eddie Johnson during last evening’s Jazz Retrospective segment of Jazz From Blue Lake. Johnson’s uncle, Doc Poston, played alto in Jimmy Noone’s Apex Club Orchestra (1920’s era band), and Johnson himself appeared with Louis Jordan’s Tympani Five (turning down an offer from Duke Ellington to work with Jordan, but later subbing for Ben Webster in Ellington’s band at a concert in Detroit, and appearing on Ellington’s 1960’s era Mary Poppins recording). Johnson rose to prominence as Chicago’s chief computer systems engineer, but returned to music in the late 1970’s, appearing in the 1980’s at the Grand Haven (MI) Winterfest with special edition of The Hubbard Street Swingers, and in Grand Rapids with Greg Sergo’s Ellington Dynasty at Lincoln Country Club. You’ll hear his music under “Jazz From Blue Lake” at our on demand page. www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  14. Chick Webb, Jo Jones, Big Sid Catlett, Gene Krupa and Buddy Rich are recognized jazz drummers from the hey day of swing. Yesterday Blue Lake Public Radio celebrated the music of another percussionist, a colorist with an elaborate set up allowing him to create sounds perfect for The Duke Ellington Orchestra from 1921 to 1951. Greer and Jimmy Blanton made a fearsome rhythm section, too. In addition to music by Sonny Greer, last night’s radio program brought you the newly issued 1956 Ella Fitzgerald recording taped at Zardi’s Jazzland in Hollywood, and we went “Out On Blue Lake” in the third hour, remembering Sunny Murray and featuring Mars Williams new Albert Ayler Xmas recording. www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  15. Yesterday jazz pianist Eddie Heywood was remembered on Jazz From Blue Lake, including his earliest recordings with the 1939 Benny Carter Orchestra, an unforgettable session with Coleman Hawkins, and his commercially successful New York Sextet of the mid-1940’s that served as house band at Jimmy Ryan’s Sunday Jam Session, appeared regularly at Café Society, accompanied Billie Holiday on record and made several sessions for Milt Gabler’s Commodore Record label. “Begin the Beguine” and other hit records by pianist Eddie Heywood found under “Jazz From Blue Lake” at our on-demand page, www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  16. Now at www.bluelake.org/ondemand “Jazz From Blue Lake” featuring the music of tenor saxophonist Chu Berry, one of the great soloists of the 1930’s. Catch the program now, as it will be replaced tomorrow. Under programs click on “Jazz From Blue Lake.”
  17. Bassist Christian McBride appears with Tip City this Thursday at St. Cecilia Music Center. On Friday, Blue Lake Public Radio featured the music of McBride on Jazz From Blue Lake, including an interview with the 4 time Grammy-award winning bassist/bandleader, as well as music by pianist Emmett Cohen and guitarist Dan Wilson who complete Tip City. The program, Jazz From Blue Lake, is available to hear from www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  18. It’s a tradition at Blue Lake Public Radio, featuring trumpeter Clifford Brown and saxophonist Illinois Jacquet on the radio at the end of October (honoring their birthdays, memories and, especially, music). So much happening in the performance arts in west Michigan this time of year, too, which Blue Lake hips you to. Clifford Brown is under “Jazz From Blue Lake” at www.bluelake.org/ondemand For Jacquet please join www.bluelake.org/listen tonight from 10 p.m.-3 a.m. edt.
  19. Dizzy time. Saturday is the 100th anniversary of jazz trumpeter Dizzy Gillespie’s birth and last night Jazz From Blue Lake featured “the theoretician” (as Budd Johnson called Gillespie) in the first 20 minutes of each hour found here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand . Saturday morning Jazz a la Carte will include plenty of Gillespie, too, from 7 – 10 a.m. and Sunday night at 10 Gillespie is featured on “Night Lights.” Please join Blue Lake Public Radio in our celebration of this entertaining virtuoso and ambassador of American music.
  20. Heard him wipe everyone out at the Chicago Jazz Festival in 1988, taking chorus after chorus on "Red Top" with a raring to go Marvin "Smitty" Smith taking no prisoners behind him. Today at www.bluelake.org/ondemand “Jazz From Blue Lake” features the music of Sonny Rollins in honor of his 87th birthday.
  21. Happy 75th birthday to drummer/pianist/bandleader Jack DeJohnette featured on Jazz From Blue Lake here (click to listen): www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  22. Tony Bennett's 91st finds the musician and painter keeping a promising performance schedule, including a concert at Ravinia in Chicago tonight and a celebration in New York on the 8th. Blue Lake Public Radio brings you jazz related recordings by Bennett during all five hours of Jazz From Blue Lake found under "Programs" here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand (In concert photograph by William Ellis.)
  23. In August 1961 drummer/bandleader Max Roach represented the civil rights movement in sound with a band moving into a unique rhythmic soundscape – Eric Dolphy and Clifford Jordan on woodwinds; Booker Little, trumpet; Julian Priester, trombone; Mal Waldron, piano; Art Davis, bass; Roach on drums plus two percussionists and the voice of Abbey Lincoln. “Tender Warriors” is a lyrical, haunting, consonant theme featuring Dolphy’s flute. After an innocent sounding trumpet solo, Dolphy’s bass clarinet interrupts in distressing dissonance – youth and experience represented symbolically in sound. This classic recording is featured in the first part of each hour of Jazz From Blue Lake Lake found under “Programs” here: www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  24. BassDrumBone is actually a trio of bassist Mark Helias, drummer Gerry Hemingway and trombonist Ray Anderson. Right now they're celebrating the 40th anniversary of creating music with a continent jumping tour. Starting in New Haven just after the nation’s bi-centennial, each member had early playing and touring experience with composer/multi-instrumentalist Anthony Braxon. A review at www.bassdrumbone.com says of BassDrumBone’s music, “Variety is a predominant factor here.” Jazz From Blue Lake focuses on the 40th anniversary of BassDrumBone and their new double CD “The Long Road” under “Programs” found here today: www.bluelake.org/ondemand
  25. 57 years ago Charles Mingus was invited to perform at the Antibes Jazz Festival in Juan Les Pins, France, a concert recorded and finally issued in the 1970's. Last night, in the first part of each hour, Blue Lake Public Radio featured that recording, and later in the evening the sessions Mingus did for Candid recordings in the fall of 1960. This 5 hour episode of Jazz From Blue Lake is available today under "Programs" https://www.bluelake.org/ondemand .
