LARRY CORYELL TURNS 72 & WE CELEBRATE…THIS WEEK ON MOJA RADIO!
In our humble opinion one of THE undisputed fathers of FUSION, and therefore MOJA, LARRY CORYELL turns 72 on the 2nd of April and we’ll be celebrating with many of our special shows all week long here on “The World’s MOdern JAzz Radio Channel”!
We’ll begin things, though, with one more celebration of the great saxophonist, MICHAEL BRECKER, on MONDAY WITH THE MASTERS. We’ll give you an hour-long, rare, live performance by LARRY CORYELL from two centuries on LIVE @ MOJALand. You’ll hear LARRY’S new release “HEAVY FEEL” on Thursday’s ALL NEW MUSIC REVUE. We’ll give you a Friday filled with the history-making music made by LARRY CORYELL during the Fusion era on FUSION FRIDAY. Then we’ll spend the day listening in on conversations that MOJA’s Russ Davis has had over the years with LARRY CORYELL followed by his great music on Saturday’s WORDS & MUSIC. On Saturday and Sunday we’ll give you another edition of THE NEW JAZZ SINGERS with CAROLYN BEDNARSKI as she gives us A MOJA DEEP DIVE, serving up artists she’s never played for you before. And we’ll give you our special features that focus on ACID JAZZ, and THE JAZZY JAMBANDS too. Of course there’s always much more coming your way this week
