This week Madison Jazz is featuring a selection from a Madison Music Collective (MMC) CD called Gathering. The CD is a compilation that was put together in 1996 and showcases some of the members from that time. It is still available and sold at MMC events to raise funds for the organization. I don’t know much more about it, maybe Joan, Jane, or Marilyn can comment on the history behind it.
Tracks on the CD are by the Joan Wildman Trio, Matt Turner, Don Linke, Harmonious Wail, Doc DeHaven, Doug Brown & Marilyn Fisher, the Diedre Buckley Trio, Al Jewer, Dangerous Odds, and the Scott Fields Ensemble.
The track I chose to feature is called Unbridled Song, written and produced by Jane Reynolds, and performed by the Jane Reynolds Trio. The musicians are:
Jane Reynolds – piano
Hans Sturm – bass
Vincent Davis – drums
The MMC is still going strong and is in the middle of their Winter/Spring season. Their next event is this Thursday when El Clan Destino gives a performance and lecture. You can find more information on that event in this previous post. Here’s the schedule of their Winter/Spring season:
