On this installment of Reclaimed Soul, we’ll be digging into Chicago Sounds both old and new.
We’ll break the cellophane shrinkwrap on a brand new vinyl copy of David Boykin Trio: Live at Dorchester Projects, an album by local jazz musician David Boykin. We’ll hear music from his latest release, recorded after a series of open rehearsals, held at the Dorchester Projects. We’ll also catch up with David, and talk to him about the state of Jazz in Chicago today.
The Dorchester Projects (in Chicago’s Woodlawn community), was created by artist/urban planner Theaster Gates as a way to activate arts programming in his community. It was also a way for him to share his collections of vinyl records, architecture books, and glass lamp slides, all salvaged from a variety of sources.
Also, we’ll hear music by Leroy Hutson, and much, much more.
