This week’s Newies
Shilts the Ex Down to the Bone’s Sax player. He’s got a great new CD out entitled Jigsaw Life
Uber-talented sax man Paul “Shilts” Weimar, at age 15, was part of the National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Great Britain, backing artists like Nancy Wilson, George Shearing, and Mel Torme. He turned pro at 16, backing the likes of The Temps, Four Tops, Drifters, and Rose Royce. From there, his personal timeline reads like this (I’ll try to be brief!)… David Bowie, Bill Wyman (Stones), Breathe, The Firm, The Brand New Heavies, and, perhaps most familiar to Smooth Jazz fans, “Down to the Bone.’JIGSAW LIFE’ is Shilts’ third solo release, marks his fond farewell from DTTB, and brings him full circle to NuGroove, the label that was DTTB’s first home in the U.S. in 1997.
Jeff Kasiwa from the CD Play
One of the most diverse, in demand sax players in all of contemporary jazz, Jeff Kashiwa finds pure joy at the heart of his increasingly fast-paced touring schedule by reminding himself, every time he gets on stage, that he’s there to do one thing: Play! We’ve recently featured The Sax pack that Jeff is a part of.
This week the show is stacked with Oldies rather than the Myspace/Friends and Moments and Whatnot’s segments.
Here we go…
Until next time – Thanks a lot for taking part in the Podcast revolution.
