Next time on Improvised Thoughts with Beegie Adair, we're joined by Carol Sloane. She is a "singer's singer" - one of those rare vocalists whose name may not be universally known, but is immediately identifiable, respected and admired by those who play the music & follow it closely.  

Improvised Thoughts w/ Beegie Adair & our guest tonight, Arturo Sandoval – in a program first heard in 1993.  Our featured music tonight – the CD Flight to Freedom, Arturo Sandoval’s first recording under the GRP label AND I Remember Clifford, released in March of '92, and received two Grammy nominations.

Grammy winning jazz pianist Bill Cunliffe will perform at MTSU  Saturday March 21st as part of the Jazz artists series.  Listen to an archived hour of Improvised Thoughts with Beegie Adair, with Bill Cunliffe as guest.

This week on Improvised Thoughts with Beegie Adair the late, great pianist James Williams is our guest in a program first heard in 1996. We get a rare opportunity to hear this exceptional, multi-faceted musician perform in 3 different settings - two of them from live performances, all from the same time period (the mid-1990s). He talks about each.   

On this edition of Improvised Thoughts with Beegie Adair we spend an hour with another member of America's jazz royalty, Dr. Billy Taylor, in a program first heard in the spring of 1994.  Though he left us in 2010, how wonderful it is to hear that warm, soothing, immediately identifiable voice again - that of perhaps the greatest advocate/ambassador modern jazz has ever had.
