This week we have the album Crossroads released by incomparable trumpeter Rick Braun. Braun is very much a family man and one of his songs is titled Family. His wife is Christiana, his daughter Emma, and his son is Kyle. Kyle is a tall youth and is very much into basketball but shows promise of following in his father’s footsteps. He plays the keys on some of the songs in this album.
I have a special segment on keyboardist Nicholas Cole. He is still just a young man. He is staying busy and making a big splash recently. I have for you his work on three different new releases on which he recently emerged.
In the middle of the first hour I will play Billboard’s top three songs in smooth jazz for this week.
The second hour is devoted to the classics from this format. In the concluding classic among classics segment, I will have a long overdue look at smooth jazz guitarist Lee Ritenour. He is for sure one of the mainstays of this format.
Thank you for your continuing support of this program and KKRN.
