A Hammond Organ spotlight opens the show, courtesy of the WRD Trio, the Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio and the James Taylor Quartet. Its groove then gives way to the contemporary sounds of Mark Lettieri and Taylor Eigsti's latest collaboration with Gretchen Parlato and Becca Stevens, the splendid new albums of Israeli pianist Maya Dunietz and bassist Almog Sharvit; the jazz forays of the Stooges' Iggy Pop (with Dr. Lonnie Smith) and Mike Watt (with Three Layer Cake); the return of trumpet maverick Jaimie Branch with a live album, and two adventurous Italian projects, Circles 44 and Koine Sound Collective; and a second taste from the impressive debut album by guitarist Zane Carney.

Happy listening!
