Blue Dimensions - Saturday Night @ 11pm after Jazz Connections

Apr 12, 2017

Saxophonist Bobby Watson - featured on this week's Blue Dimensions - Saturday night at 11:00 pm on KRCB-FM Radio 91

In this hour of Blue Dimensions, it's "Made In America," a new album from saxophonist Bobby Watson, who offers music honoring several African-American leaders and innovators, whose great achievements may not be well-known to the public at large, including a highly successful businesswoman and philanthropist (Madam C. J. Walker), a guitarist (Grant Green - we'll also hear from him as well), and a famed officer of the law (Bass Reeves). We'll play some new blues from Eric Bibb, whose latest album "Migration Blues" explores the plight of people forced to leave their homes, and a song from the late great bluesman Lonnie Brooks who died April 1st. We'll open up the strong new album "Reach" from pianist Christian Sands, and go back to 1976 for the Bill Evans Trio in concert, a recording available for the first time now, in 2017.
