Daybreak, weekdays 6 AM - Noon w/Gary Walker

New Day/New Play – 6AM:
Gary spotlights music from drummer Terri Lyne Carrington’s recording New Standards, Vo. 1

As part of her significant artistry, drummer Terri Lyne Carrington has worked indefatigably to advocate for inclusivity and raise the voice of women, trans and non-binary people in jazz, setting in motion a shift in narrative. Carrington's new book, New Standards”, is a compilation of 101 jazz compositions written by women. New Standards, Vol. 1 features 11 of those compositions.

With the core of Carrington, pianist Kris Davis, bassist Linda May Han Oh, trumpeter Nicholas Payton and guitarist Matthew Stevens, special guests including Melanie Charles, Samara Joy, Dianne Reeves, Ravi Coltrane, Ambrose Akinmusire and Julian Lage, it's an engaging range of contemporary vocal ballads to contemporary creative music, showing the vast universe of jazz.
