Bookmark and Share

Tonight, Tuesday January 29 on KMUW: Witchita - Night Train, it's music from the CTI label. Known for its lush sound, massive lineups, and commercial sensibilities, CTI was one of the most successful jazz labels of the era. It was started by Creed Taylor who began his career at Bethelem Records, headed up the famous Impulse imprint, championed the then-new sound of bossa nova at Verve, and then started CTI. We'll hear label releases from such legends as Ron Carter, Stanley Turrentine, George Benson, Hubert Laws, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Jim Hall, and Milt Jackson.
