On The Way Up
Designed by Kate Johnson

Our spectrum of music in this episode runs from latin to jazz, to pop and rock, and our segue of the week pairs a lesser known bluegrass classic with the debut from a banjo prodigy. Also, for our “DJ For A Day” segment, we return to our Purple Prose theme in a new way, pondering whether some of these hyperbolic press releases could be art after all.

Centerpiece Jazz has been playing swing, Latin jazz, showtunes, and ballads since guitarist Joseph Hasty formed it here in Western NC in 1995. They are excited to now have New Orleans drummer Geoff Clapp joining them for a number of upcoming gigs, including Morganton on March 31st and May 5th, and Saluda on April 22nd.
