The young and very talented Christian Sands leads off this week's episode of Neon Jazz with music from his 2018 CD Facing Dragons. We then segue into his mentor Dr. Billy Taylor and profile Massachusetts native saxophonist Kyle Nasser with music from his latest disc Persistent Fancy. The talented group of young cats manufacturing a funk/jazz sound called The Black Tie Brass debuts their latest CD Mostly Covered. And, finally, we play the tune "Flimsy" form the great British outfit The New Mastersounds off Nashvilles Sessions 2.
