This week we feature another highly anticipated release in jazz. Esperanza Spaulding's Radio Music Society follows her Grammy award for best new artist. We play two tracks from the album, released this week. We follow with more new music from jazz harmonica player Gregoire Maret, and pianist Vijay Iyer. More music follows from Jeremy Pelt and JD Allen, both of which appeared in the Hartford area this week. We keep with a local twist from Greg August the Curtis Brothers and Gary Smulyan who has a new release, Smul's Paradise.
