Soon after she graduated from Boston's </span>Berklee<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> College of Music, she was hired as a double bass instructor.

And he's used his skill admirably in the service of bebop ideas advanced by his mentor, Dizzy Gillespie. His working band&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.5;">served up bursts of lyricism in abundance — yes, including those </span>altissimo<span style="line-height: 1.5;"> screams.</span></p> Tue, 01 Jul 2014 01:00:00 +0000 46402 at http://redriverradio.org Newport Jazz Festival: Jon Faddis Quintet Live Newport Jazz Festival: Jim Hall Trio With Julian Lage http://redriverradio.org/post/newport-jazz-festival-jim-hall-trio-julian-lage <p><strong>Airs Monday, June 23 at 8 p.m. </strong>One of the finest guitar players in jazz history — who made all those classic records with Sonny Rollins, Bill Evans, Ron Carter and so on — is still at it at age 82. Fittingly, Jim Hall's rhythm section at Newport is top-shelf international caliber: Scott Colley (bass) and Lewis Nash (drums). And Julian Lage, a much younger guitar phenom, joined in a cross-generational confab of guitar heroes.<br /><br />Personnel<br /><br />Jim Hall, guitar<br />Scott Colley, bass<br />Lewis Nash, drums<br />Julian Lage, guitar<br /><br />Set List Tue, 24 Jun 2014 01:00:00 +0000 46044 at http://redriverradio.org Newport Jazz Festival: Jim Hall Trio With Julian Lage Newport Jazz Festival: Ray Anderson Pocket Brass Band Live http://redriverradio.org/post/newport-jazz-festival-ray-anderson-pocket-brass-band-live <p><strong>Airs Monday, June 16 at 8 p.m.</strong> Take a New-Orleans-style brass band, then cram it into a Volkswagen Golf: That's the general principle of how trombonist Ray Anderson's band makes a joyful noise with only four members. Matt Perrine is the sousaphonist of choice for many a New Orleans group; his bass line supports the trombone-trumpet free-for-all. The Pocket Brass Band presents music from his Sweet Chicago Suite, inspired by his hometown.<br /><br />Personnel<br /><br />Ray Anderson, trombone<br />Lew Soloff, trumpet<br />Matt Perrine, sousaphone Tue, 17 Jun 2014 01:00:00 +0000 45699 at http://redriverradio.org Newport Jazz Festival: Ray Anderson Pocket Brass Band Live
