Serenade To The City

Canadian born award-winning Guitarist Rod Tardik is back with a vengeance, teaming up with Dave Koz for B Positive, a bright uptempo track from his 8th album Diversity, Vol. 2: Contemporary Funky Jazz(Guitardik Music).  Rod’s been making music for sometime now and he’s no stranger to the Billboard Jazz Chart’s Top 10.  This collaboration with Dave Koz will have position him nicely for a return to the Top of the Charts.

The title of Keith Slattery’s latest single It’ll Be Alright(Maxophone Music) kind of sums up what the world has been saying for the last year as we face the pandemic. As we enter 2021 with a vaccine in our midst maybe this song is timely.

Christmas Music All Day Christmas Day

Dec 25, 2020

This time of year is always special because we get to hear classic holiday songs and how today’s artists put their twist on them.  Here are some of my favorite picks and you’ll hear them all day long on Christmas Day on Jazz 91.9 WCLK:

Doug Jones- “This Christmas”-  This Donny Hathaway classic is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year.  Doug gives this holiday classic a funky twist but remains true to the essence of this holiday classic.

When I received the new version of Turn Your Love Around I immediately downloaded it eager to hear it. First, I’m a longtime George Benson fan, even before working with him briefly while at Warner Bros Records. Secondly, this is my favorite Benson song and third, but not finally, it’s a live recording!
