One of my favorite jazz journalists, Bob Bernotas, will be interviewing one of my favorite new jazz trombonists, Michael Dease, on his radio show tonight (July 25, 2010). You can listen in online between 10 PM and 3 AM Eastern Time at www.wnti.org.
I first heard Mike’s playing when he sent his album, The Takeover, to the Online Trombone Journal to be reviewed. As the Reviews Editor at the time, I would listen to the CD and select a reviewer who had a background in that musical style to write the article. After hearing Dease’s playing and writing I decided to write the review myself so I could keep the CD.
Dease has a new album out, called Grace. I’m sure it will be worth picking up, but listen in to Bob’s radio show to hear for yourself.
