Album Review: Béla Fleck and the Marcus Roberts Trio - Across the Imaginary Divide

It’s rare to hear banjo in a straight-ahead jazz setting these days, which makes the new collaboration between banjoist Béla Fleck and jazz masters the Marcus Roberts Trio all the more interesting.  What started as an impromptu jam session at the Savannah Music Festival in 2009 has turned into an hour long album entitled Across The Imaginary Divide, released June 10 on Rounder Records. 

The Unofficial Start to Summer: The World Music Version, Part 1

In looking at the calendar for this week's World Music Show (5/26), I realized that this weekend marks the "unofficial" beginning of the summer season. And like any good procrastinator, as is my nature, I suddenly realized that I had to come up with some type of theme to talk about. Well, thank goodness for holidays. Because after perusing the playlist for Saturday's show, I realized that, indeed, there is a theme hidden inside that can corralate with the start of summer. So follow me as I try to persuade you on my new found theme.
