WEMU Playlists

89.1 Jazz with Linda Yohn Linda Yohn Mar 26, 2013
9:00AM - 12:30PM
WEMU’s focus for Women’s History Month 2013 has been a living history approach. Throughout March we have balanced classic recordings of blues jazz women with new offerings. Two new offerings appeared this morning on 89.1 Jazz. The first of these is "Getaway" by pianist Lisa Hilton with bassist Larry Grenadier and drummer Nasheet Waits. This is Lisa’s fifteenth CD as a leader and her third in the company of Grenadier and Waits. There is an old saying: the third time is the charm and Getaway is Lisa Hilton’s most charming and beguiling CD to date. Fans of Vince Guaraldi, Bud Powell, Mary Lou Williams, Red Garland Joanne Brackeen will appreciate Lisa’s lithe touch, rumbling rhythms, judicious use of the sustain pedal and her humorous quotes. The humor and playfulness is balanced with probing, spiritual meditations. Taken in its entirety, "Getaway" by pianist Lisa Hilton will transport you to many different places in its one hour of playing time. Our second surprise was “Je Te Veux” an original French lyric meaning “I Want You” set to an Erik Satie melody performed by pianist Jacky Terrasson with guest vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant. Ms. Salvant sings two songs on Terrasson’s new CD "Gouache". The two tunes give you a mere taste of Cécile McLorin Salvant’s incredible vocal prowess. Her CD on Mack Avenue Records will be released in May and is sure to be a WEMU listener and staff favorite. With Lisa Hilton and Cécile McLorin Salvant we are assured that women will continue to contribute to the depth, variety and enjoyment of jazz for years to come.
