On this edition you can hear a portrait and feature of two pioneering voices and legends of German postwar Jazz, paying tribute to the late great pianist Michael Naura and honoring the veteran vibraphonist Wolfgang Schlueter both on the forefront of progressive Jazz in Europe and beyond, showcasing their work together as a duet, in small and Big Band setting.

The CEO Experiment has released a new animation for one of their tracks “SunBeam”, one of my personal favourites. Check it out below.

The CEO Experiment is one of a kind Piano Trio which combines delicate atmospherics and highly creative improvisations, oscillating between almost every genre in Jazz. The CEO Experiment's music is thoughtful and inventive but also full of character, reflecting the different background and imagination of the players.

We're very happy to celebrate the longest day of the year by bringing you the animation video of our single "SunBeam", a song dedicated to the sun. What better day to give our appreciation and thanks to the universe and the sun than today!

A huge thank you to the creator of the animation video Anthony Sands who spent days and nights perfecting this absolutely beautiful video, thanks for everything Anthony, you are magical, beautiful and extremely talented human being!

Now....PRESS PLAY AND ENJOY!

 This is a BIG Hot Box, responding to the demands of listeners for a Big Band Special. However, it doesn’t contain the standard historic fare of Basie, Ellington and Herman. Instead you’ll find the one-off bands of bassists Ron Carter (celebrating his 80th birthday this year) and Christian McBride, the modern sounds of both Bob Mintzer’s Big Band and The Big Phat Band from Hollywood, California, and from above the 49th Parallel, the Grammy winning band of trombonist Rob McConnell, The Boss Brass. You’ll also find some tracks laid down by Dublin’s Hot House Big Band, now commencing a residency at Harry’s on The Green.

As a pause for breath, Hot Box 14 also features new material from Irish jazz singer Edel Meade, from Brazilian singer and pianist Eliane Elias’ new album on Concord, “Dance of Time”, and from New England pianist Pete Malinvarni’s new album “Heaven”.
