Noon Edition

What's New: February 2010

This week on Afterglow I'll feature new music from two performers from different ends of the generational spectrum-26-year-old singer Kat Edmonson and 91-year-old bandleader Gerald Wilson – as well as an interview with pianist Ben Neuman and music from his debut CD Introductions.

"What's New" highlights Edmonson's covers of modern pop-rock artists like John Lennon and the Cure, Wilson's tribute to his Detroit high school that produced several jazz greats, and Neuman's swinging, melodically-charged take on tunes from the Great American Songbook.

Read or listen to interviews with Kat Edmonson.

Watch the Gerald Wilson big band in the studio recording "Before Motown" from his new CD Detroit:
