FUNKY JAZZ IN 2015 – FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION

FUNKY JAZZ IN 2015 – FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION

A couple of classics were released this past year, a few tributes, music from some that are jazz favorites and a couple of relative new-comers.  Harry Connick’s new release is a little different from what is longtime fans may be used to from him.  His CD “That Would Be Me” was released this month.  Herb Alpert’s “Come Fly with Me,” became available last month, as well as Lizz Wright’s “Freedom & Surrender.”  http://museumofuncutfunk.com/2015/09/17/for-the-funkin-love-of-lizz/
