NPR has full audio recordings from the latest edition of The Checkout: Live From 92Y Tribeca, featuring Ben Williams & Sound Effect and Pedro Giraudo Jazz Orchestra.
It’s the bassist’s role in jazz to know the time and place; to anchor a band rhythmically and guide it through a song. The young bassists Pedro Giraudo and Ben Williams are quite adept at all that, but when they lead their own bands, they have an even broader sense of time and place.
Check out the set list, see a photo album of the performances, and listen to complete audio recordings on NPR’s A Blog Supreme.
The Checkout: Live from 92YTribeca is curated by Joshua Jackson, host of WBGO’s hour-long music magazine The Checkout. Next up in the series is Eric Harland and Eric Harland on August 9.
