Newport Jazz Festival: Gretchen Parlato Live

Gretchen Parlato

Airs Monday, September 16 at 8 p.m.  It's not her light and feathery voice so much as how she uses it: phrased creatively, on pitch, in ways that request and reward closer attention. It's to her credit that hip young New York musicians are happy to play with Parlato — she's as much a musician as they are. One such grouping appears here at the CareFusion Newport Jazz Festival in Newport, R.I.

Personnel
Gretchen Parlato, vocals
Gerald Clayton, piano/Fender Rhodes

Newport Jazz Festival: Ryan Truesdell's Gil Evans Centennial Project Live

Airs Tuesday, July 2 at 9 p.m. What if there were lost big-band masterpieces by the great composer/arranger Gil Evans which never made it to record? In fact, there are plenty of them, according to composer/arranger Ryan Truesdell. He's culled, researched, transcribed and completed a handful of the best for Evans' 100th birthday anniversary. It helps that he's the lead copyist for composer Maria Schneider; he's borrowed much of her orchestra to record and now perform this rich, intensely-hued material.
