Join host Doug Jayne, Saturday night at 7:00 pm, for 4 hours of great music on Jazz Connections!

From Doug:

"I was drawn to the music of the Big Bands as a kid, watching my dad reminisce and play his rare Glenn Miller tapes. As I grew up and starting digging progressive rock, I expanded into progressive Jazz, such as John McLaughlin, Weather Report and their ilk. When I started in the record biz in 1975, I was enlightened by my customers, some true Jazz fans that showed me the albums to check out. Miles and Mingus and Monk: Oh MY!!

John Prine "the Tree of Forgiveness" CD of the Week

Apr 13, 2018

John Prine is an American treasure.  His new release "The Tree of Forgiveness" is the first collection of original material in 13 years, and it is certainly worth the wait. The cover is a close up of the artists' face, with the years worn in full detail, the warmth still shining through.  Produced at RCA Studio A in Nashville by Dave Cobb, Prine has written ten beautiful tunes, love songs and tongue in cheek ditties, a theme of mortality running throughout.
