This week we start with the well-established and talented Russian-born jazz pianist Yelena Eckemoff and from there we continue to delve into new jazz releases with Jason Palmer and Native Soul. We profile the talented saxophonist Benjamin Boone with work off his CD The Poetry of Jazz Volume 2 featuring the late great poet Phillip Levine. We also keep that poetry mentality going strong with jazz singer Lisa B (Lisa Bernstein) paying homage to Cecil Taylor on the one-year anniversary of his passing. We wrap this episode up with the talented and young Kansas City drummer Tyree Johnson. Our final track christens the new 2019 baseball season with the tune "Gathering Crowds" by John Scott as the intro to This Week in Baseball.
