Charts and Adds for the Third Week of September

As always, our weekly adds and charts from the world of jazz here at KZSC.  Some new artists are infiltrating what has otherwise been a summer dominated by a few great artists. This week we have introduced Afro Bop Alliance, a compilation of upbeat Brazilian tunes, to the airwaves alongside Moon Hooch, a new New York experimental jazz group. And by experimental, I mean straight up placing traffic cones in their horns. All the same, we are lucky to have a fair mixture of jazz legends of new and old. New Blue Note artists include pianist and composer Jason Moran (All Rise); and drummer Otis Brown III (The Thought of You).  Brown has worked alongside acclaimed artists like Esperanza Spalding and Terence Blancahard. Chick Corea’s latest album Triology is nothing short of a trinity of modern jazz masters…. Bassist Christian McBride  and drummer Brian Blade accompany Corea on this live album, which contains three albums steeped in hard driving melodic lines.
