Miles Davis – Kind of Blue – to be Featured on The Inner Groove

Miles Davis was a trumpet player who defined (then re-defined) jazz across multiple decades.  In 1958, he recorded the seminal album “Kind of Blue”.  Paul Gutowski came in to discuss the album for an upcoming episode of The Inner Groove.  In his discussion with Bob Francis, they talked about the then-new modal jazz model that Miles Davis created for “Kind of Blue”, and were amazed constantly by the level of musicianship that allowed each track of the album to be recorded in two takes or less.

Their discussion along with the complete album will air Saturday night at 7 pm on The Inner Groove program.

The Beatles – Abbey Road – to be Featured on The Inner Groove

Bob James – Touchdown – to be Featured on The Inner Groove

Bob James is a well-known jazz pianist.  His early albums were numbered or had a play on words about their number.  “Touchdown” was his sixth album released in 1978 (a touchdown is six points).  Daniel Francis spoke with Paul Gutowski about the musicianship on the record – a veritable who’s who of artists that would go on to make names for themselves in the 1980s and beyond.  He also explained how he first acquired the album and what it means to him personally.

Their discussion along with the complete album will air Saturday night at 7 pm on The Inner Groove program.
