Shauli Einav is a saxophonist from Israel based in New York. His new cd, Generations, captures him and his band burning brightly on a varied program of jazz standards and two original tunes from Einav. The sound harkens back to the Blue Note sessions of the 1960's and if you didn't know this was a new album, you might think you were listening to some long lost Blue Note bop session from the vault.
An NPR tradition every New Year's Eve since 1979, Toast of the Nation is perfect for the occasion. It's jazz you can party to, all night from coast to coast,with countdowns to midnight in all four continental time zones. Spirited, improvised, grooving and swinging, each segment is a stop in a sequence of celebrations and contributing something new to the musical feast. Toast of the Nation is co-produced by WBGO FM in Newark, New Jersey and NPR Music.
