This week on the program, I’ll be doing something I do about every six months on the show, and bringing you a roundup of the best new releases in the world of vocal jazz and the Great American songbook. We have a handful of great new recordings, including new albums by Diana Krall, Eliane Elias, and a duo between mandolinist Chris Thile and jazz pianist Brad Mehldau. We’ll also hear the latest Great American Songbook offering from Bob Dylan. Plus we’ll hear from a brand new artist, the winner of the latest Thelonious Monk jazz vocal competition, a singer by the name of Jazz Horn.
And check out Recent Releases, Part 2, exploring new records by Gregory Porter, Cécile McLorin Salvant, Dee Dee Bridgewater, and more.
