This week we channel the energy of today's British jazz scene with saxophonist Karen Sharp with music off her latest album The Sun, The Moon and You. From there, we take a look into a recent visit to Kansas City by the Portland-based pianist Kerry Politzer. We then feature Kerry's husband, George Colligan and get some good cuts in from Fay Victor and Ella Fitzgerald. We bring things back up with the sounds of new Grammy award winning drummer Dafnis Prieto and end it all with the brilliance of David Berkman with his sextet. Another fine hour of Neon Jazz to dig.
