Gary Bartz en La Montaña Rusa Radio Jazz
El saxofonista Gary Bartz del que escuchamos, Music is My Sanctuary del año 1977. Es nuestro clásico de esta semana.

Aquí está nuestro número semanal de La Montaña Rusa, la radio jazz. Abrimos con nuestro clásico de la semana, Music is My Sanctuary, una excelente muestra de algunos de los álbumes de Soul Jazz que se grabaron en los 70, en este caso, de la mano del saxofonista Gary Bartz.

Algunos de los más talentosos nombres de su generación, andan detrás de Pindio. Nada menos que Juan Saiz, Marco Mezquida, Alex Reviriego y Genís Bagés firman éste excelente H.C. publicado este 2016. Otra novedad que os presentamos en LMR esta semana es el último trabajo del gran Bill Frisell, When You Wish Upon a Star, en el que el guitarrista versionea algunas de las bandas sonoras clásicas más conocidas.

Después nos acercamos al tributo que John Medeski y Terri-Lyne Carrington junto a la HDR Big Band, ridieron en el año 2014 a la música de la Tony Williams Lifetime. Y otra novedad que escuchamos, es el nuevo trabajo del percusionista Cyro Baptista, BlueFly, publicado este 2016.

También escuchamos uno de los trabajos del extraordinario músico que es el neoyorkino Kip Hanrahan. En este caso, oímos una selección de All Roads Are Made Of The Flesh, publicado en 1995. Y cerramos con nuestro clásico de la semana, ese SoulJazz del saxofonista Gary Bartz en Music is My Sanctuary, publicado en 1977, pleno de groove, soul y disco.

A jugar!

La Montaña Rusa #350. Billie Holiday. Companyia Electrica Dharma. José Luis Santacruz. Jerry González & Miguel Blanco. George Cables

Abrimos este número de La Montaña Rusa celebrando los 100 años del nacimiento de la gran Billie Holiday. Abriremos y cerraremos LMR de esta semana con la excelsa voz de la diosa Holiday, a través de su publicación para Verve del año 1958, All or nothing at all.

Siguiendo con el repaso a las bandas más fusioneras y jazz rockeras de aquel maravilloso especial dedicado al rock progresivo español que hicimos en La Ruleta Rusa, nuestro programa hermano rockero, hoy le toca turno a una de nuestras preferidas, la Companyia Electrica Dharma, mítica banda que continúa hoy en día con su trayectoria. Escuchamos una selección de su debut del año 1975, Diumenge.

Entrando de lleno en el jazz contemporáneo, hace bien poquico que el saxofonista José Luis Santacruz nos hizo llegar su magnífico Through Jaco, homenaje al gran Jaco Pastorius en el que Santacruz desarrolla una innovadora técnica a los mandos de su saxo soprano. Nos ha encantado.

Y de la mano de Youkali Music, escuchamos una selección de este excelente tributo a la Fort Apache Band, una de las bandas míticas de latin jazz liderada por el gran Jerry González. Pues bien, de la mano del trompetista y del gran Miguel Blanco, una de las figuras destacadisimas del latin jazz en España, junto a alguno de los grandes músicos cubanos establecidos en España y otros grandes músicos de jazz españoles como Marc Miralta o Javier Colina, firman este A Tribute to The Fort Apache Band.

Volvemos al jazz clásico pero esta vez a los 80, de la mano del pianista George Cables y su Cables’s Vision que presenta entre otros músicos, al trompetista Freddie Hubbard.

Y cerramos como empezamos, con la gran Billie Holiday en conmemoración del centenario de su nacimiento. Grande!!
