Bookmark and Share

There are some impressive new releases in the jazz world this week. Sound Advice, hosted by Jazz Music Director Gary Vercelli, previews among other things, the new release from Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, "Charlie Watts Meets The Danish Radio Big Band" on Impulse! - Verve. 

Although known for his work with The Rolling Stones, Watts has always been an admirer of jazz. He holds legendary drummer Elvin Jones in high esteem and dedicates a composition to him on this collection. This LIVE album of big band classics, originals, and Stones covers, which pairs Watts with the Danish Radio Big Band was recorded at the newly opened Concert Hall of Denmark in Copenhagen and broadcast on Danish National Radio. This project is the brainchild of trumpeter Gerard Presencer. We'll enjoy his flugelhorn solo on the Stones classic -  "Satisfaction."     LISTEN TO THE SEGMENT
