Straight No Chaser - A Jazz Show

Welcome to Straight No Chaser, the Award-winning Podcast hosted by Jeffrey Siegel

Jan 13, 2012

I'm getting psyched already for a performance by the SF Jazz Collective at the University of Massachusetts Fine Arts Center March 1, 2012. The all-star band - saxophonist Antonio Hart; trombonist Robin Eubanks, a two-time DownBeat “Trombonist of the Year”; trumpeter Avishai Cohen; Grammy-nominated vibraphonist Stefon Harris.  pianist Edward Simon and  two of the most in-demand sidemen on the international scene—bassist Matt Penman and Eric Harland, winner of DownBeat #1 Rising Star drummer for the last three years - will be performing an all-Stevie Wonder program.

I've done two podcasts already of jazz musicians covering Stevie tunes, so what's one more between friends? Click here to listen to Podcast 253, which includes Wonder-ful versions of Stevie's songs, including:

Ramsey Lewis - "Uptight (Everything is)"

Charles Earland - "I Was Made to Love Her"

Norman Brown - "Too High"

Najee - "All Day Sucker/Easy Going Evening"

Nnena Freelon - "Creepin’"
