Aji Picante Radio Latin Jazz & More
On this, his latest CD, Corey Christiansen interprets in a thoroughly modern jazz way, some of the old cowboy songs and melodies of the frontier.
Tunes like "Streets of Laredo;" "Red River Valley" and "Sittin' on Top of the World" will be quite familiar to many of us and the latter title really swings.
The other tunes which may not be as familiar are given an excellent jazz treatment and proves that any tune with a great melody can be adapted to the jazz genre.
Many of these tunes Americans have grown up with and will be intrigued by Corey's interpretations. Bruce Forman with his "Cow Bop" music has proved this music is popular with both jazz and popular music audiences and Corey Christian I think has taken it a step further.
