In this episode of my show, baritone saxophonist, Lauren Sevian is showcased. With Lauren on this newly released CD are pianist, Robert Rodriguez, bassist, Christian McBride, drummer, E J Strickland and alto saxophonist, Alexa Tarantino. Lauren's tone on the bari is remarkably fluid yet filled with energy. Five tracks are sampled from this Positone release titled, 'Bliss': the title track, 'Miss Lady', 'Triple Water', 'In the Loop', 'Goldies Chance' and 'Lamb and Bunny'. Lauren says this recording is about love in it's many variations... see if you agree...

Brian has been on the scene now for a number of years and it seems that he has truly established himself as one of our top shelf jazz organists. Constantly moving forward and yet keeping a respectful ear on what came before him, Brian thrills audiences on both coasts with his broad perspective of 'organic' sounds. He's an author, educator, composer and one of the best and most modern jazz organists you'll hear. In this episode of my Doodlin' Lounge, we hear several tracks from his newest CD release - one that features the great tenor saxophonist, George Coleman - AND his drummer son, George Coleman, Jr. Brian Charette is a force to be reckoned with, to be sure! Enjoy...

This podcast is from my archives. The Jazz Organ Fellowship had plans to honor Melvin Rhyne in 2012 and I thought it was important to interview him and begin the process of publicizing this. I had spoken to him over the phone several times in the past but this particular recorded conversation was more revealing than others. I felt blessed to have become friends with Mel and was proud to bestow upon him our JOF Award.
