• WBGO Studio Session - Jaleel Shaw Quintet

    May 6, 2008. Posted by Joshua Jackson.

     

    Watch "Flipside," from a studio session we did with saxophonist Jaleel Shaw.
    Shaw was recently honored with an ASCAP Foundation Young Jazz Composer award. His new record is called Optimism. [Great title]. On that recording, "Flipside" is in the lead-off position, as it was during our studio date.
    We shot video only on the first take. The second was even better, and it will be part of the posted session. You'll have to wait until mid-month for that. Meanwhile, check out my other favorite sessions on NPR Music. And support young talent in jazz. Go to gigs. Buy records. And contribute to WBGO.
