Music http://wfit.org en Dave Fries' Jazz Pick- Bill McBirnie Trio http://wfit.org/post/dave-fries-jazz-pick-bill-mcbirnie-trio <p>Consummate Canadian jazz and Latin flutist Bill McBirnie has released a new album (his sixth) which departs, in a significant way, from all three of his previously acclaimed acoustic jazz projects (<em>Mercy with Robi Botos</em>; <em>Paco Paco</em> with Bernie Senensky; and <em>Nature Boy</em> with Mark Eisenman). On<em> Find Your Place</em>, Bill has placed the flute in a very unlikely setting—as part of an organ trio!</p> Wed, 29 Jan 2014 18:54:17 +0000 Dave Fries 31642 at http://wfit.org Dave Fries' Jazz Pick- Bill McBirnie Trio Julius C.

Once a member of the original Hot Club Detroit, Bennett stays within the mainstream repertoire, covering several go Goodman’s most famous records. This album blazes its own path with Dave’s clarinet skills while still paying tribute to his mentors.</p> Tue, 24 Dec 2013 05:16:47 +0000 Dave Fries 30389 at http://wfit.org Dave Fries' Top 10 Albums Of 2013
