WEMU Playlists

89.1 Jazz with Linda Yohn Linda Yohn Mar 07, 2013
9:00AM - 12:30PM
This morning WEMU premiered "December's Moon" the CD by organist/pianist/accordionist Ron Oswanski. Oswanski grew up in Toledo, Ohio and Monroe, Michigan. About 20 years ago he was a WEMU Heritage Festival Jazz Competition winner. His is a very cool and contemporary approach to jazz organ eschewing the standard funk groove. "Decembers' Moon" is an important library addition because Tecumseh native, saxophonist Tim Ries produced the session for Ron Oswanski and is the featured saxophonist. We paired Ron Oswanski's disc up with two women players who play organ in a creative fashion: Barbara Dennerlein and Carla Bley for a fresh take on Women's History Month. For a little traditional contrast to Oswanski, Bley and Dennerlein we put Shirley Scott, Duncan McMillan and Charles Earland in the mix. The playlist this morning even included the father of jazz organ, Fats Waller!
