Welcome to the completely re-imagined bonus show for members of The Jazz Session! I’m really happy with how this turned out, and this is the general smorgasbord format I’ll be using going forward. This episode is going out on the main feed, too, as a means of encouraging YOU to support The Jazz Session. In this episode:
- Dan Rubright reviews his Winter JazzFest experience, including sets featuring: Matthew Stevens, Aaron Parks, Tommy Crane, Taylor Eigsti, Carmen Staaf, Jenny Scheinman, Allison Miller, Mathias Eick, Dave Liebman, Adam Rudolph, Hamid Drake, and more. Dan also gives a few tips for folks who want to catch the festival in 2020.
- In an extra segment not heard on TJS #472, bassist Tim Lefebvre talks about some of the many projects he’s involved with as both a player and producer, and also about the role of a producer in the modern era.
- And finally I talk about Samm Henshaw, a British soul singer who’s on heavy rotation in my house these days.
