The Cuban Bridge on the radio : Sunday, April 23rd, Jazz in Europe celebrating The International Day of Jazz !

An Invitation to Tune in, Listen to and Discover,

Trumpeter Randy Brecker,  an emeritus statesman whose life in music spans six decades, forges a career record, exploring the contours of Jazz’s Great American Songbook in collaboration with the DR Big Band and the Danish National Chamber Orchestra.

With lushly conceived charts penned by Jazz’s premier arrangers, including Grammy winner Vince Mendoza, plus Arthur Altman, Arthur Hamilton, Frank Churchill, John Barry, Gordon Jenkins, Vincent Nilsson, Gerard Presencer, Siobhan Lamb and Bill Dobbins, The Jazz Ballad Song Book is both cinematic and intimate, reflecting perfectly the scope of Brecker’s contribution to popular music.

Evergreens include

“Cry Me a River,” “All or Nothing at All,” “Someday My Prince Will Come,” “Skylark,” and
“Round Midnight”.

Randy Brecker contributes The Jazz Ballad Songbook repertoire with two of hos own compositions : “Forgone Conclusion” and “I talk to the trees”.

Like many if my previous radio shows, I’m proud of the music and the quality of the selection. Since 1989, first in HAVANA, CUBA, and since 2016 in Vermont, USA I’ve noticed the growth of our audience, and this is simply attributed to thousands of musicians that have been enlisted through the years.

Last SUNDAY April 16th, our show ended up with 4827 HITS since our foundation on FEBRUARY 2010,   515 new people viewing our playlist and 327 HITS in a 5 hours transmission show with a guest guitarist JAMES GRAM  playing the music of Heitor Villalobos, Agustin Barrios “Mangore”,  J.S. Bach, Frank Martin and Francisco Tarrega.

My mission is to touch and inspire as many people as I can through the sounds and rhythms of the world. Next SUNDAY, Rhythm is newly gonna get y’a !
