Living Jazz, Fridays at Noon.
The beat will be the thing on this week’s “Living Jazz” show. We’ll hear new releases and pre-releases from great drummers such as Brian Blade, Terri Lyne Carrington, Antonio Sanchez and McKaya McCraven. We’ll also check out a selection of new music out of London with a definite dance beat, as well as some new tunes out of Africa with roots in traditional music. We’ll finish off with the legendary sax man Wayne Shorter, both from a new live album with Terri Lyne Carrington on drums and from “The Classic Blue Note Recordings,” an extraordinarily cool CD I had hoped to feature last week but didn’t get to.
“Living Jazz” airs Fridays from noon to 2 p.m. on WJFF, 90.5 F.M., and streams online at wjffradio.org
