In this hour of Blue Dimensions, "Cyrille Aimée Live." We'll hear several songs from the French jazz chanteuse in spirited live performances, including two Michael Jackson songs and one by Stephen Sondheim. Cyrille Aimée is one of the jazz players today who are re-interpreting music from the rock and soul world with creative energy and zest. Also: two "Lone Ranger" songs, one from Dom Flemons, singing about the African-American lawman who may have been the inspiration for the Lone Ranger story, a US Marshall who was born a slave, Bass Reeves, and another, more of a love song really, from Walter Wolfman Washington.
Also a song from a great bluesman Eddy Clearwater, who died on June 1st, singing about how he made his living (playing the blues), plus new music from saxophonist Tia Fuller, with Jack DeJohnette, Terri Lyne Carrington, and Dave Holland in the band - - and pianist Benito Gonzalez, drummer Gerry Gibbs, & bassist Essiet Okon Essiet, with "Passion Reverence Transcendence," a tribute to McCoy Tyner.
