African-American

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.

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).
