Cuban Bridge

Aug 11, 2019 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM

With Student DJs

Good afternoon everyone, my name is Toni Basanta, and I am the DJ Host of The Cuban Bridge on the radio, here at WWPV 92.5 FM "The Mike", the Saint Michael's College station. We are coming to you from Colchester, Vermont, in the US of America.

In our show this afternoon, we have lots of new and energizing music with the likes of Cuban saxophonist Alfred Thompson and his Caribbean Ensemble, guitarist George Benson, trumpet player John Lamkin, pianists Jon Batiste, Luke Gillespie and Lynne Arriale, singers Shirley Crabbe, Matt Belsante, and Quiana Lynell, American jazz saxophonist and educator Christopher Hollyday, and other celebrities.

There is a lot of FUN to be had, and we also prepared a Selection of Jazziz Magazine Critics Choice Summer 2019. They edit a Double CD Compilation after their review, which is interesting to be updated with What's Going On in the Jazz World in the 7 continents.

Our Closing will feature a Caribbean Explosion, inspired by the music of Joe Henderson, Jamaican singer Everton "Pablo" Paul with The Academy of drummer Ruy Lopez-Nussa, Billy Ocean, Arturo Sandoval, Lionel Richie, Wayne Wallace and Canela Group from Cuba. By the way, CANELA is celebrating 30 years in the making with a new album, a Nomination to the Cuba Disco Award, and the Award of Honor of the main event on Cuban discography. I think that is well deserved, you will let me know what you think about this band when you listen to some of the new tracks we will be playing.

Thank you very much for having us.
