Episode 265 - Brandon Beebe

An active and exciting new songwriter on the Madison and WI scenes, Brandon Beebe was the recent recipient of a 2012 Madison Music Award for "Best New Artist". "Gently finger-picked acoustic guitar and vocals are deceptive; a close listen reveals layers of delicate sounds that are simply a joy to delve into. At times he can seem much older than his years. His lyrics are deeply felt and bear the mark of someone who has a lifetime of experiences to draw from." (Rick Tvedt / Local Sounds Magazine)

Episode 264 - Luke Polipnick

Part Two
Guitarist-composer-producer Luke Polipnick returns to Madison with a special group of top improvisers from New York City (drummer Mike Pride) and the Twin Cities (saxophonist Brandon Wozniak and bassist Adam Linz) to kick off a Fall Midwestern tour. Luke and his band-mates exemplify the eclectic approach that many of our younger creative musicians are taking today, moving with great skill and confidence as they cross and integrate musical genres, while infusing their music with the improvisational spirit and masterful technique so central to good jazz. For "Jazz on a Sunday," Luke's group will be performing new music that he composed for the group's Fall tour. He describes it as featuring "thematic material from folksy to rocking but rooted in jazz, appealing to fans of "post rock," folk, reggae, free improvisation and mainstream jazz."
