Primetime Jazz 15 January 2016 Feat. Michael Brecker


The Radio Adelaide Primetime Jazz show for Friday evening carries the theme “What’s New”. My first show for 2016 features music released late 2015 as well as three releases from Sunnyside Records out early in 2016. There’s a track from a stunning release featuring Michael Brecker.

The music comes from artists across the globe with a special focus on the Melbourne based saxophonist Julien Wilson who, through his label Lionsharecords, released “This Narrow Isthmus” and “A Life In A Day” late in 2015. I feature releases from these two CDs on this show not only because they contain wonderful music but also as Julien will be performing in Adelaide on Monday 18th January at the COMA Sessions, Wheatsheaf Hotel.

This Narrow Isthmus” by The Julien Wilson Quartet features the following Musicians;

Julien Wilson – tenor sax & clarinet

Barney McAll – grand piano

Allan Browne – drums & cymbals

Jonathan Zwartz – double bass

The CD “A Life In A Day” is Australian alto saxophonist David Ades’ final album which was recorded in New York September 2013. The release features an 8 page booklet with liner notes, photos and art by Dave’s family and friends and features the following musicians;

David Ades – alto saxophone

Tony Malaby – soprano & tenor saxophones

Mark Helias – bass

Gerald Cleaver – drums

The radio show is available to hear again through the “Listen Again” feature on the Radio Adelaide website.
