As the year-end summations start trickling in, allow me to plug two coming attractions. (At least, I hope they’re attractions.) On Monday, I’ll be on the BBC programme Jazz on 3, talking about the jackpot of superb piano-led jazz albums released this year (three in particular).
Appropriately, the episode will also feature a concert recording of Geri Allen, from this year’s London Jazz Festival. So tune in, Britons; everyone else, stream it here. (By my calculation, the show begins at 6:15 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.)
And also: maybe you recall the healthy critical roundtable hosted here at The Gig last year. I’ll be doing it again with a different cast, starting on Monday, Dec. 13. So, watch this space; good stuff ahead.
