3rd Streaming with Gary Chew, Fri 4/22 3p PT

The new biopic about Miles Davis is opening, and Gary has several minutes of Miles and Gil Evans doing music that came from the mid-50s and was labeled "Third Stream." In addition, the amazing coloratura soprano Kathleen Battle sings a riveting song called “Take My Mother Home”--music by Andre Previn and words by Toni Morrison. Also in the mix, Arturo Sandoval blows his trumpet with Patrick Williams's big beautiful band in a piece composed and arranged by Mr. Williams in salute of his daughter. Finally, Gil Shaham fiddles his way through the first movement of Barber’s Violin Concerto as if he were playing “Happy Birthday.”  You can’t hear this kind of music in such an interesting mix anywhere else except KDRT in Davis. What more need be said?
