You can now hear episode 2 of “The Scene”, Hardbop’s monthly podcast. The podcast will feature a different jazz artist on the scene, either emerging or established and play excerpts from their latest release. This month we feature Mike DiRubbo a humble saxophonist from the New York/Connecticut area who came up in the late ’90s after graduating from the Hart School. We spoke about his time there, studying under the great Jackie McLean, and his decision to use organ and drums (sans guitar) for his latest record “Chronos”. Check out the podcast here:
Mike will be appearing at Smalls Jazz Club one week from today, thats March 24, 2011. If you are in the New York area, you wont want to miss this killer set. Stay tune next month for our next feature on “The Scene”. Thanks for listening.
