Episode 290 - Graminy

Founded in 2010, Graminy seeks to fuse the classical and grassroots tradi- tions, from Bach to bluegrass, from Co- pland to Celtic, from Gershwin to native American, from Kodaly to klezmer, and more. Drawing on all these styles, Graminy composes and arranges all its music and calls it Class-Grass.

Graminy’s music focuses on themes of ecology and place. The name derives from the botanical name for the grass family, Gramineae, as their music draws on the entire family of grassroots tradi- tions, from all places and ecologies.

Their  new CD, “Germinations: A Blue- grass Symphony in D” has been nominated for awards in several categories at this year’s MAMA Awards (Madison Area Music Awards).

Episode 284 - Hanah Jon Taylor Artet

While being one of our community's top jazz saxophonists and flutists, like so many great jazz artists through the decades, Hanah Jon Taylor seems to have garnered greater accolades in Europe and other foreign locales than in his own backyard. Over the years Taylor has brought his highly-intuitive and envelope-pushing style of playing to enthusiastic audiences in all corners of the globe. Just returning from concerts in Poland and Paris, he will bring to Madison a top-flight group of Chicago musicians including pianist Jim Baker, Alex Wing on bass, guitar and oud, and percussionist Dushun Mosley for our "Jazz on a Sunday" spring series finale.

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)
