Sunday Music Day - Clay Jenkins, Gene Bertoncini, Ike Strum, and Redman, Mehldau, McBride, Blade

This Sunday Music Muse Day finds us celebrating Easter Sunday with family on bright sunny afternoon.  It also a good time to enjoy some good tunes from two groups of musicians who it seems couldn't come up with a group name.  First up is Clay Jenkins Gene Bertoncini Ike Sturm Joy, a trumpet, guitar, bass trio. Trumpeter Clay Jenkins is a member to Trio East with drummer Rich Thompson. I've seen Trio East often, and look forward to seeing them again, soon. The wonderful session is collections of well known tunes and an original by Jenkins, and guitarist Gene Bertoncini.  Worth a listen.

My second selection is Redman Mehldau Mcbride Blade - RoundAgain, as in Joshua Redman saxophones, Brad Mehldau piano, Christen McBride bass, and and Brian Blades drums. This is killer CD that the tune Floppy Diss is getting major air play on Jazz 90.1.  Again, well worth a listen.

It is Easter Day, so I  keeping this short and sweet.  Enjoy.
