Jazz Around the World — 6–8:30PM SLT

This past week­end, I (Carter) had the plea­sure of attend­ing my third New­port Jazz Fes­ti­val.

And, as has become a sort of Mon­day Night World Music tra­di­tion, my first show after the fes­ti­val is an adven­ture in inter­na­tion­al jazz.

Tonight’s set will include selec­tions from three new (to me) artists whom I heard for the first time at the fes­ti­val. You’ll hear Regi­na Carter, a vio­lin play­er whose band includes an accor­dion and a kora, the tra­di­tion­al string instru­ment from Mali. Also in the mix, a sneak peek at Miguel Zenón’s new album of jazz grooves inspired by Puer­to Rico. And there will be music from Israeli trum­peter Avishai Cohen.

Also in the world-jazz mix, South Africa’s Hugh Masekela; some Indo-Jazz fusion from the likes of Rudresh Mahan­thap­pa and Vijay Iyer; and much, much more. This is a set you don’t want to miss. So come hang out and enjoy the grooves tonight from 6–8:30PM SLT. You can find us in world at Mad­hu’s Café Indi­en, or lis­ten in on Radio Riel’s main stream. Hope to see you there!
