Big Tuesday – March 25
It’s a good day for modern jazz releases on Tuesday.
The latest from the man with the eight-string guitar, Charlie Hunter, will be out. Right Now Move was recorded in a three-day period and I’m looking forward to hearing what the track “Whoop-Ass” is all about.
Wayne Shorter hasn’t had a studio album in about nine years and hasn’t recorded an all-acoustic studio album since 1967! Alegria marks Mr. Shorter’s return to an acoustic environment, with the same stellar musicians that made last year’s Footprints Live! a success. Danilo Perez, John Patitucci, and Brian Blade play on most of the tracks.
Stanley Clarke’s 1, 2 To the Bass has been pushed back to April 15. It was originally due on March 25 as well.
Also on March 25, a man who would later publish two web sites about his love of jazz was born.
