In A Mellow Tone

In A Mellow Tone
Wednesday April 10th, 2019 with Jim Reil
Records from Makaya McCraven and Ray Angry that made many 10 Best Jazz Recordings lists in 2018

Tonight we listen to two superb and very different 2018 recordings. Makaya McCraven's Universal Beings is entirely improvised and brilliantly edited, harkening back to the Miles Davis of In A Silent Way. One by Ray Angry leans towards a mid-1960s Blue Note sound.
