Live webcast and artist interview with WBGO host Rhonda Hamilton will begin at 7:15pm EST on jazz.org/live
. WBGO is proud to partner once again with Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola on Monday Nights with WBGO. The series features talented new artists as well as groups from some of the area's great college jazz programs. Each performance is hosted by WBGO announcer Rhonda Hamilton. With pianist/vocalist Loston Harris, bassist Gianluca Renzi, and saxophonist Mike Lee Loston Harris is a suave vocalist and an extremely talented pianist. In addition to original tunes, much of his group’s repertoire comes from the Great American Songbook, but the musicians treat this material with the nuanced sensibility of a swinging jazz trio. Harris’ rich vocals are enjoyable when they’re present, but he’s also an aggressive, exciting soloist on the piano, and he leaves ample room for instrumental improvisation. Even without the propulsion of a drummer, this trio burns with an unassailable drive. Loston performed in The Appel Room multiple times, so it’s an exciting opportunity to catch him in Jazz at Lincoln Center’s most intimate venue.
