This Week at CafeJazz.ca ... Season #13 opening show ...
... features Philippe Saisse & At World's Edge in the showcase spotlight. Hour 2 brings Fresh Trax with all the best in new music. Highlighting this edition is Peter White with the title track from his forthcoming release. Debuting we have James Colah & Mike Parlett with the Parlett/Colah Project and a selection that is, as of yet, unreleased! As well, we're playing a bit of catch-up with a couple of tracks from Shane Isenberg and Richard Smith's L.A. Chillharmonic; meanwhile it's the group known as Tea rounding out the set! Then later that same hour, we're peeling back the calendar pages with a pack of tracks from back in the day - this time that includes Paul Taylor, Terry Disley and an all-time favourite from Craig Chaquico & Russ Freeman; while scattered thruout ... like moonbeams in the night ... we have the likes of Tom Grant, Steve Oliver, and Joe Ercole!!!
On After Hours ...On the Beach!!
... spurred by the summer heat, this edition is slathered with excitement - it's called On the Beach and naturally 'nough each of our spin selections has that very word in its title. So stay tuned for the sandy sounds of Venice Beach, Kissin' on the Beach, and Beach Days, with a dozen seaside tunes in all. We have Chris Rea opening the show with the namesake track for the feature, and he's backed by Germany's Blue Knights; as well as there's Marion Meadows and the down tempo style of the band RioListic. Gregg Karukas launches set #2 and we continue with Tom Braxton, Urban Jazz Coalition, and Earl Klugh. Meanwhile the closing set has David Sanborn, Soul Ballet, and Peter White. Then in the end, as the sun beats down and the surf continues to pound, we have the cascading sounds of Allon Sams !!
