Coming Up – Week of January 30 - February 5, 2023

"Daybreak", weekdays 6 AM - Noon w/Gary Walker,

New Day/New Play – 6AM:

Artist: Kenny Barron
Album: The Source

A noted pianist once told me playing solo is like giving a speech with no clothes on.

Even NEA Jazzmaster Kenny Barron says, " Playing solo piano is still nerve-racking."

But for this well versed, well-seasoned legend, you would never suspect. "The Source",

Barron's first solo recording since 1981, shows his usual strengths of humanity, abandoning pretense, allowing these 9 tunes, each reflecting a moment in his career, to find fresh translation, each evolving in a different direction. It's the ultimate intimate gesture at the hands of this master, more than comfortable to share the emotional source of his truths with the listener.
